grill/bumper painting?

i was thinkin about paintin the grill and bumber all black. if i was to do this what kinda paint would i use and how would i prep the bumber and grill to get it ready to paint. or if you think this is a stupid idea you can let me know too i just like black better than all the chrome.

i was also thinkin about gettin the american racing ar-23s with 30x9.5 bfg t/a kos any opinions on that would be great too thanks

WowMike2001 Fender Flare Painting

Here's a member on here that repainted his fender flare and I believe his valance as well with the same products. As far as the grill, you can get a grill from Carriage works makes a billet grill that comes in chrome or black and is pretty nice looking. I think the bumper would look better chrome and not black.

Carriage Works 01-03 Billet Grill.

You could try to get it to look good yourself, but I would get it professionally done. It can't cost too much just to do the bumper. Those a/r wheels look OK, not my style but anything is better than narrow stock steel wheels. If you get a black grill and paint your bumper do the headlight mod. It would look good.
