98-00 grille

ive got a 98 4x4... the grile and bumpers are the gray ones that ford made and im sick of the way it looks... overall i wanna paint the grille and bumpers but for right now i wanna do the grille. im not the best at painting but im gonna do at least the grille myself.. i have several questions that ive searched and found nothing that really helps in my situation since my grille is not chrome, but gray. do i need to sand it down to rough it up? do i need to use primer spray? do i just use the krylon auto paint stuff in a can? and can i use the clear coat over the top of it???

I would ruff up the bumper. Take it off. It is not too hard and then sand it paint it clear it and reinstall for a new truck. I painted my grill and bumper. I painted the grill White to match the truck and the bumper Blue along with my fender flares and lights(check Pic) because I love blue.
