    Any paint will work just fine...as long as you clean it VERY well and prep. If you use just the run-of-the-mill rattle can, you will have to scuff it up a bit and prime it first. I have used the Krylon for plastic and vinyl without priming...always turned out well. You can use the engine enamel, but there is no need for high temp paints on the plastics...nowhere near hot enough.

    This^^^ , Krylon Fusion is great stuff and Lowe's also sells a Rustoleum for plastics that I've used. Post up some pics when you get it painted!
