hi just make sure you get plastic primer and away you go.. is it textured plastic? or smooth?

Key it, Prime it, spray it..
(Red Scoth Brite pad)->(Plastic Primer)->(Basecoat then lacquer)

if you want a really good finish flat it with 2000 or above be careful not to take the lacquer off and then use some Farecla G3 and elbow grease! (other brands are available) :P

Should be able to pick up everything from Halfords.. again other shops are available :)

as above and preperation dont sand where you intend to paint youll just get dust in it and take youre time build up light coats of paint rather than lagering it on
