Spray paint plastic wing mirrors?


I would like to spray paint the casing on my wing mirrors so they're colour coded to the rest of the car. However, I'm not 100% how to do this and was wondering if anyone could tell me.

Here is what I've learnt so far from the research I've done:

1.) Using 100 grit sandpaper, sand down the plastic (not too much of course!)
2.) Use 800 grit sandpaper to get it smooth
3.) Apply a plastic primer and wait for it to dry
4.) Repeat stepts 2 and 3 until it's nice and smooth
5.) Apply the spray paint
6.) Apply a laquer to give it the shiney effect

Has anyone done this? Is this right or not?

Thanks for any help!
