Default painting a-arms and shock towers

has anyone ever painted internal plastics? im wondering what kind of paint would be best for painting a-arms, towers and maybe my air filter housing?

and does anyone have some pics of theirs that they might have painted.

breaking it down took about 20 min. i cleaned the pieces with a degreaser and dried them with a blow dryier, (bout half hour) primered and let dry for about an hour. first coat and let dry for about 30 minutes and second coat and let them dry for 2 hours...
