hmm...black I'm guessing...I'd just use some primer and black auto paint then hit with a clear...use alot or clear...prolly a can of each would be enough, but I dunno. Flat black might even look better

Black dude. I used a high quality non-chipping, ultra durable paint. It's made for special applications where chipping/fading can be an issue (which is my grill) and it was at lowes in a larger than normal aluminum spray can. I like it, hasn't worn/chipped/dulled at all and I was in clay this past weekend, a few rocks hit me, and I am in the sun constantly. And it's pretty shiny too!

If you don't want it shiny, you can hit it with a matte clear coat after the auto paint.
