Question Spray painting Espace tailgate

After an exploding tailgate glass incident, I have bought a replacement tailgate for my '99 Grand Espace (cheaper than replacing glass I didnt have glass cover on insurance). Anyway the replacement tailgate is silver with the rest of the car blue. I fancy having a go at spraying it and have been doing a bit of research on techniques. Does it make any difference that the panel is plastic rather than metal? Could I get away with rubbing down the existing silver paint, priming and top-coating. I obviously cant take it down to bare metal as its plastic! Any tips?
