I've used polycarb cans and acrylics with an airbrush on ABS shells. The key thing has always been to finish them with a clear lacquer, which has to be done very carefully with acrylics or it will ruin the paint.

Can or airbrush all depends on the detail you want, personally I prefer airbrush.

Personal,I'd use normal car paint for base colour then airbrush to do signs or details,but as said before clear coat after. I use 2k clear which is alot stronger then your normal clear.
