Plastic painting

Has anyone painted the plastic filler panel that goes between the front bumper and just under the grill. Mine is completely discolored from the ultras to a mottled grey? If so, what paint did you use/recommend?

I ripped mine off and threw it in the trash, however Krylon Fusion would be your best bet. Or you could use plasti-dip, and if you don't like it just peel it off.

They sell a Plastic Adhesion Promoter that you can spray before you primer/paint it. This will help the paint stick and prevent future problems.

Scuff the plastic with 120 grit, spray it with bulldog adhesion promoter before you paint it and you should have no issues.

Turtle wax makes a trim restorer product that I used on all my plastics and it made them look brand new again.
