Spray Painting a Billet Grille??

So I was thinking one of two things. I want to either spray paint a billet grille flat black or get it powder coated. I dont want to spend the money to powder coat it really. So would spray painting it work?

I thot maybe a coat or so of primer and then three coats of paint... should I ude something to seal it?

Thanks everyone

A good primer is a must imo. Paint doesn't like to stick to plastics like the grille. You could seal with a clear coat when your done, and if ur running flat black just get a no gloss clear coat.
