Re-painting plastic basement doors

I've been searching the forum for tips on how to re-finish the basement doors on my 2000 Sea View. Mine are pretty faded and cracked in places. I'd love to be able to repair and re-paint them, possibly with a new color scheme rather than the current baby blue. Someone posted the plastic material used was "centrex", but I've seen nothing posted about re-finishing them.

Any ideas out there? Thanks in advance

check with your local paint supplier. It may need a primer, or special paint that will adhere to plastic.

I unscrewed individually and prepped using wet and dry sandpaper. Visited auto detail supplier. Used high quality rattle can mixed to the color of choice. I used product specific to the surface being applied to :0)

We had ours remade out of fiberglass by a local guy. Ours were all cracked and would have been impossible to repair. Hopeful will get them all painted soon. He could have colored the fiberglass but we just went with white. It was alot cheaper then then the company that bought the molds from National RV and is selling them.
