Painting engine cover

I was wondering what kind of paint would be needed when painting the engine cover and possible a few other plastic parts under the hood and would you say clear coat would also bee needed

youd probably want something to help with the flexing of the plastic, Ive done a few things under the hood of my LX Charger and used normal automotive paint without any issues (painted intake mani on my hemi) but these flimsy parts bend when being pulled off the engine etc. so maybe bumper paint as I dont really think youd need anything "high heat" for this application.

No siggy needed.
