Any opinions out there on a good paint for the plastic housing of my mirrors? They will need to be cleaned regularly because of bug guts so I'm looking for something that will withstand the abuse.

Headed out to tape off mirrors now then bead blast what I can in prep for paint.

Careful on the bead blast. Actually Tere, walnut shells are better for cleaning plastic. Turn you air pressure down so you do not damage the old plastic. Use the same paint that is used on plastic bumpers. Gloss paint is easier to clean than satin or low gloss.
