Krylon Fusion or plastic bumper spray paint. I don't think they ever came black, gray textured or smooth for painting.

I bought one on Ebay that was cheap, and new. It was black in the photo, opened the box and it was gray. X2 on I don't think they were ever made in black. I painted my textured one. Lasts a few years.
