Painting the rear Panels

Guys

I need to paint the little plastic panels behind the back side windows. Anybody got any tips? Can the panel be removed and what paint should I use.

Thanks

Some say fusion is pretty good. This company sells plastic paint color matched to the agate and other factory colors.

quick note fabric and trim paint is quick and easy and no need to prime but 8 bucks a can and home depot gloss black is a dollar and primer is 3bucks the colors and quality turn out the same its just 15 minutes compared to an hour for 4 bucks but keep in mind once you do some you will want more ive gone through 6 cans of the hd and 5 of the trim paint and two of prime but now everything inside is black and blue it looks awesome

Those fake vent looking things? I would mask them off and then shoot em. Less chance of them breaking if you try to remove them. Just my 2 pennies. Thats how I did mine they have held up great

You have waaaay too much time on your hands, Zeejay.
But the answer is "no, I haven't noticed. But now, I will have to test it, out of pure curiosity."

'Been thinking about spraying black bed liner on those panels, myself, since I have two extra cans from doing my headliner.
