What's a good paint for plastic - DIY harley

I have a spare set of lights broken apart to do a projector retrofit for my 2011 and decided to do the harley light as well. The whole thing that I'm painting is chrome plastic, so I've sanded down one and am going to hit the other one later. I'm going to an auto parts store at lunch, and wanted to see what the best paint can is for this purpose.

I'm not going to do the Tuxedo Black Metallic because I dont think it will matter that much and dont want to wait to order some. I also dont want to paint it with something that will fail later on since I absolutely dont want to bake the headlight and take it apart again to fix. I'd like to stick away from adhesive promoter too. Bad experience with that.

So, would something like black krylon be the best bet? It wont be getting hit by rocks or anything being that its inside the headlamp housing. Flat black or shiny black...it all doesnt matter too much to me!

Krylon fusion works well on plastics it has acetone in the paint which helps it bond with the plastic. You can buy it at any hardware store.
