Default Grill paint?

I am wanting to spruce up my old honeycomb grill. I want a silver or chrome look. But what I want to know is what kind of paint to use. Not color, but KIND...ie: Brand, Specification, Spray, or brush...

I got mine in the automotive section at wallyworld. Duplicolor Bumper Chrome (spray) if I remember - although it actually turned out silver. I'd suggest a couple coats of clear on top too.

I was at Wally-World today...I saw the Dupli-Color products. I will look for it when I go back this weekend. It is a 25mi drive, so I have to "schedule" trips. I can get that done and install my new Custom Air Intake.

Thanks

Dupli-color is one of the better brands for this type of stuff, maybe some krylon would work too? They have plastic paints that are made for this type of material.

I used wheel paint i believe. I had extra sitting around.
