Window louvers...

So I bought some abs plastic louvers for the small triangular shaped windows and need to pain them. Anyone have advice on a good method. Do they need to be roughed up first? Also, where to get sprayable paint to match the factory black?

You can buy touch up paint in spray cans from your Chevy dealer but you'll need the paint code to match.

Your Camaro is black no metallic or pearls any black for any make of vehicle will be one and the same! Advance Auto, Napa any one will have that in stock no sense in paying dealer prices!?
Scuff with a red 3m scuff pad adhesion promoter good primer wet sand with 400grit wet sand paper paint black a good 2 to 4 coats and follow up with the same amount of clear wet sand with 1500grit wet then 2000 grit wet buff to a gorgeous finish
