I have used paints for plastic in the past, but they must say for plastic. I also skuffed it up a little.

rustoleum makes good paint for plastic. don't use goof off. try mineral spirits to remove sticker residue and such. Use a quality paper towel and keep rubbing with a clean section as the glue will quickly coat the towel.
