Plastic is tough to work with. Try using 200-220 grit paper then work up to 400. Before you start you must use a cleaning agent to remove any oils, wax, etc. If not as you sand you will drive the impurities into the plastic. If that happens paint will neve stick. Any primer, sealer, and paint should have a flex agent added to it. If not when the plastic bends or moves the paint will crack and lift off. Good luck if you are attempting to get a quality and durable finish using a rattle can.
