It's all easy to paint and there are plenty of threads about it. I think silver would be a safe choice, however I wouldnt use that paint you chose. I'd go with some Krylon or comparable brand that is designed for plastic.

You want to get Krylon Fusion paint for plastics. It works great for interior painting. You can find this at any Home Depot, WallMart, Meijer's etc. It only takes about an hour to dry.

To do the black parts your going to want to....
1. Wash it
2. wet sand it and then wash it again(wet sanding helps to get the paint to stick to the plastic)
3. Prime...yes you should prime it especially if you are going from a black to i guess you said silver...?
4. Color...what ever you have choosen
5. Then a clear coat the more clear coats you do the better off you are to help prevent fading from the sun

and take the pieces off to get the best results and about the symbols on the windows and doorlocks...usually you would just leave them black otherwise its gonna look real bad if ur not some michangelo artist

All I did for mine was wash it really really well. This is key, if you don't get all the dirt that fingers and hands carry, it will end up blotchy and uneven. I used one of those Mr. Clean magic erasers to do this and it worked good. Use as many coats as you need. I used the Krylon and it worked well. Pics are in my cardomain in my signature if you're interested in seeing how blue looks.
