    Plastic primer then paint them, Problem with them being painted is the paint comes off with stone chips so it won't last long anyway.

    as said, plastic primer them, give them a few coats of paint then a few coats of laquer. The more laquer the more shiney! Wouldnt use and stone chip paint as its normally bobbley in texture rather than smooth.
