just do a rattle can flat back, and be sure not to leave runs, and then buy a exterior clear coat, doesnt have to be car paint, just any exterior clear coat, and clear coat it, ive done it to my friends car, came out half way decent for 15$ lol. If the color doesnt have to be black then you could try white, that doesnt look half bad with spray can, or a nice blue.. good luck tho

do not use krylon it will not let auto paint stick and it will peal and fall off. make sure the spray paint is for automotive use

thats just my two cents you'll thank me later

ditto, I've done a bumper with spray paint, got auto primer, auto black, and auto clear coat.. wasn't expensive, do some wet sanding and pick up a tub of polishing compound, and buff the **** out of it when its done it'll look pretty good!

I'd just primer it until you can get the right paint and air paint it yourself.
