I went down to my local auto body supply store and they mixed up some exact match color of interior plastic specialty paint. I just got it in a pint can and used my regular HPLV paint sprayer to apply it straight out of the can but they could put it into a rattle can for a extra cost. It is all a matter of how well you clean the parts as to how it will look when finished. Clean with clean dye and perfume free dish soap (Dawn works for me) and a scrub brush. Then rinse with some clean water. I thin took some plastic prep that was matched to the paint system I was using and wiped it down. Then I sprayed 3 coats. One semi dry followed by 2 wet coats with about 5 min between coats. It looked good and has held up well.
