I just scuffed mine really good, then cleaned with alcohol
Mine was tan, and I used krylon fusion
Came out great I think:

X2 on the Fusion.
I use it on most everything...
A light sanding with 400-800 grit, wash with mild hand soap & let dry, wipe down with rubbing alcohol (higher alcohol % is better) with a lint free cloth & let dry, spray several light coats with light wet sanding/cleaning between coats.

scuff with red scotchbrite pad, cleaning with alcohol before paint is ok, I recommend using a prep solvent, and plastic adhesion promoter, but fusion does work well on non-recycled plastics
