Default Painting valance?

i have the gray plastic valance with the texture to it. I like the look of stl with the valance to match the body and the chrome on top. I want to paint mine to match just wondering what i should do. Just clean it and then spray it with the automotive paint or prime first? and sand away the texture first? Also do you think it will look good. Thanks

I sanded the texture down until it was nice and smooth, then hit it with several light coats of Krylon Fusion. After about a week, I polished it up with some cleaner wax.
One thing you have going for you is that it looks like your truck is black--black always matches.
