Yes, i did paint the front piece. The paint i used is made by Krylon and its called Fusion. Its specifically made for painting plastic. You can buy it an walmart type retail store. Its very simple to do. you do not have to sand the piece to prep it. just clean it good with an ammonia based household cleaner, then spray it on. I sprayed 2 coats of clear over it to make it shine and make it more durable.
