Default Chrome Painted Grill

Hey all, got a question for ya. I'm thinking about painting my grill a chrome color and I was wondering how those of you that did this did yours. A couple basic questions are:

Did you prime before you painted?
Did you use spray paint or custom mixed/canned paint?
What color/brand did you use for your grill?
And finally, if you've got any pictures that would be great.

I have a 94 Green SE, all stock. Thanks for the help in advance.

nice writeup. It should be the same for your year too, except the grille might be attached differently, but it shouldnt be too hard.
