before painting any plastic -- give it a wipe over with a little alcohol to get rid of any crap that might be on it-- Enamel should be fine -- but for all my foamies I use a water based spray can paint-- Dulux Aquacolour

I used spray enamel from Pep Boys auto store. You should sand the cowl first.

There are pictures on this page.

I used Testors model paint (spray) and haven't had any trouble with it. Just be sure you spray it on lightly or it will run.
