I want to paint a SAAB steering wheel..it's made of an unknown hard plastic. What is the best paint to use for a tough long lasting finish?

I used gloss black "PlasiKote" in a aersol from B&Q with good effects, its claimed to be hard wearing but I guess only time will tell.

I've painted mine, but have used a Black two pack acrylic on it, and it looks as good as new.
