Thats the only kind of paint I use. It may chip from road debris but no way of preventing that.

That is what my grille is painted with. I used Satin Black instead of gloss black.

It'll look fine. I painted my rear bumper plastic with it, just make sure you buy satin and not gloss.

I used the satin black fusion about 4 years ago. Just repainted it a month ago even though it didn't need it.

I want to do this too, should i just mask around the grille or take it off, IF taking it off. it is hard getting it back on. i heard it's just held in with clips and snacks back on.

yeah, once it is painted, you can just snap it back in, provided you didn't break any tabs.
