deamon - I have used Rustoleums universal primer (including plastic) on a welding helmet that came out very well as a base coat as well. (matte black). make sure the surface is free of loose stuff like rust and old paint. key it well - maybe a 600 or 800 grit. hope this helps. It also depends what paint you have in your arsenal too. It will also help to see what it looks like tomorrow when you post it :)

edit - some peeps advise an adhesion promoter before the base coat (good idea Wayne :) ). Mr Mic posted a link somewhere.......http://www.amazon.com/Klean-Strip-B...488&sr=8-1&keywords=bulldog+adhesion+promoter

ya - a degreaser is very important too - especially if oils have been used :)
 
As always, the crew here have very good advice.
The adhesion promoter will bond your paint to the plastic, but may not necessarily help with any metal parts.
A magnet will sort that out for you, if you're not 100% sure.
On these parts [if any] clean thoroughly with wax and grease remover, then prime with a base coat colour to suit your finished paint job.
Good luck!
