ABS is one of the easiest to work with, it welds OK and polyester fillers stick really well. Regular automotive paints work just fine with no need for any adhesion promoters. Be carefull with 1K paints though, lacquers and basecoats will sometimes melt abs if a good primer/sealer isn't used. Epoxy primer is your best bet and makes for an excellent solvent barrier.
