Painting Fendors or plastics

Hi im new to these forums, and a jeep noobie- i was wondering what is the best color black to paint your plastics on the outside of my jeep wrangler- they are a bit faded, or if there are alternitives to the stock ones.

I just did mine with Krylon Fusion, came out great! I only used 2 cans, prep by then follow that up with wiping it down with acetone before painting.

Good luck!

When painting plastic, its always a good idea to use adhesion promoter.

x2 for the Fusion Paint. I've used it on some motorcyle parts and it seems to do a good job!!

Painted the grill, headlight bezels, chrome retaining headlight rings, bumper and bumper corners with PlastiKote Industrial Flat black. It's holding up great with little to know prep work before.
