2001 Grille needs some paint-- what kind?

My 2001 XLT needs some paint on her honeycomb grille. What brand/type of paint should I get? I want to change that faded gray to black and I want it to last a while.

Thanks guys,

I'd get Mar-Hyde or Duplicolor trim/bumper paint in satin black. Clean it well and apply adhesion promoter first.

I used Duplicolor Adhesion Promoter(clear primer), then Krylon Fusion satin black. Kinda faded over the past 4 years, but still looks black compaired to the stock ugly grey.
