Default Painting odds and ends

I would like to paint the little odds and ends in my PT. I was wondering what is the best way to do it. They're all plastic and I don't want it to peel off. Do I paint it on with a brush or spray paint? Should I use some sort of primer? Most parts are inside but some will be outside (like rain gaurds and the door pillars). Also I have the 03 Turbo and in silver and the driver and pass. side gauge and airbag cover is carbon fiber (I think it is plastic). I would like to paint this as well. Thanks for the help.

Parts that have a finish are easy, just use an adhesion promoter and shoot but if it's a textured nonfinished oiece it has a plastic coating that will ripple and peel if any paint touches it. that coating can be removed, sanding, solvents etc.
Good luck!

What about painting the center bezel? Is this the same technic, sand the film off and primer, coat paints, and clearcoat?
