I removed the whole decklid panel which is honestly a PITA. Then removed the gas cap and taped off the center. I cleaned it with mineral spirits and used the Krylon Fusion Plastic spray paint with 4 coats. Didn't sand it as this specific paint is designed to adhere to plastics without sanding.
I think it came out great, clear coat isn't a bad idea but even without it I believe it should last for quite a while.
If I could do it over I would leave it on the car, tape it off, and then cover the car and paint it that way. Would be much easier than dealing with the hassle of breaking the decklid tabs and removing the gas cap from it.
