If it's Rubber or a rubberized plastic don't even try it.

Check around at auto parts stores, and paint stores. You should be able to find a line of flexible-when-dry spray paints. Your best bet is to find a DuPont store, but some auto supply shops also carry DuPont products. Either one should be able to match your car's color if that's what you choose to do. Be sure that you use a good primer though, or you won't get good results from any paint. If you can't find a flexible primer that is specifically designed for plastic, go to Wal-Mart and get some Krylon Fusion. I don't recommend the Fusion for your color coat, but it works really well as a primer.
