How's the paint under the hood?

If you've painted the plastic parts under the hood (ex: battery cover), did you sand the part first? What paint did you use? How long have you had it done, and how's it looking now?

If your using a spray can, about all you can do is go to an auto body supply store and get some grease and wax remover to help adheasion. If you have access to profesoinal paint equipment, you do the same, but can spray a adheision promotor on it first.
