Painting plastic fenders

We're about to paint the bus (white roof and light green body) with acrylic enamel paint. Spraying it on. It's prepped and cleaned, about to be taped in a minute. Those black plastic fenders are gonna look ugly, but I'm worried that if I paint them that it'll start to peel. How does everyone else paint their plastic fenders on the front? It's some sort of textured plastic, really bumpy feeling.

There are now tons of paints formulated especially for plastic and they work quite well. Check any auto parts house. I repainted the plastic tank & fenders on my Honda trail bike and it has held up very well.
