Painting plastic inner grill

What method do you all use when painting something like a plastic grill that is going to be exposed to weather and bugs.

Thanks

If it is part of a bumper assembly etc.. I use adhesion promoter like Bulldog, and paint it like I would the bumper.. bulldog... epoxy... base... clear


Note: Not all plastic requires adhesion promoter but I just use it on everything and dont worry about it.. It does not hurt to use it

I too have had excellent results with the Bulldog Promoter.
What I like best is it is available in a spray can and a little goes a long way.

a single coat seems to work better than the recomended 2 in this reporters opinion

The grille he is painting is ABS so no need for promoter on this one.
