you would have to do some light sanding to get the paint to stay on there but i dont see why it wouldn't work...

or you can try the peanut butter treatment

Haha, what's the peanut butter treatment?
Now that it's been brought up, my piece is almost white. I've put Black Magic on it like crazy but it's no use.

You could definitely paint it black with some spray paint made for plastics, even if it doesn't stay for ever it would be a much improved look for a while.

you do NOT have to sand it to get the paint to stick. you need to use cleaning solvent and make sure there is no dirt or oil on the piece at all. the plastic paint will work just fine. Just be sure to use a thin coat of plastic primer first.

the peanut butter treatment is when you rub peanut butter onto faded plastics on your car.. let it sit.. then wipe off..

usually the oils in the peanut butter will bring back the original color of the plastics
