Painted Rear Valence

Has anyone out there painted the black plastic lower rear valence and as i have a drop top those "gound effects " frame coverups as well.I clean em polish em with Mothers Back to Black and soon they are dirty and kinda gray looking.I was thinking body colour but not sure how the paint would stand up.Is there a better polish for this type of plastic.The Back to Black looks great when first done but it attracts dust like ArmorAll so a short drive and dust.

Yeah i used to use the back to black also and was wondering of a good product also.
But as far as painting the rear and side-skirts i know of a couple people that have had it done and it looks good. They did paint match.

I checked with a painter I know ,he says it is paintable it just needs to be done with the proper additives in the paint to allow it to flex.What he wasn't sure of is wether or not it would chip due to road debris.Not sure what to do,I have even thought about using tire shine to try and get a tougher coating.

Get a GXP or AIT rear bumper? lol I don't think paint will hold up all that well on that surface.
