Same process for vinyl painting other parts of the car. Althought you may need to apply some plastic primer to these parts as they are usually given more rough treatment than other parts of the car.

The only way to make dye 'soak' into plastic is to use inustrial dye called RIT dye and boil some water to soften the plastic and pour in the dye. Make sure you have an old pot laying around for that!
