    Certainly with the darker colours you should think of spraying them to match the car, as car plastics do tend to start out black but get progressively greyer – I think due to the effects of sunlight. In addition, any bit of wax polish carelessly coming into contact with the black plastic bits really ruins the finish.

    These “black bits don’t look too bad after time on silver and other light colours, but can soon look really tatty against shiny dark paint.

    I think if the correct primer is used, there’s no problem of paint adherence.

    Its saturn blue mate, that price doesn't include the original cost of the mudguards... had them sprayed at my local paint supplier; He's an independent paint supplier and does a bit of spraying on the side... he used all the proper materials and it was cheaper than doing it myself!!!

    Flexible primer and flexible paint (specially suited for flexible plastics) then a coat of soft laquer for best results.
