Rustoleum may work but you can buy bumper and grill paint in a spray can that will work better. Its a bit softer and is made for plastic. I redid one of mine about 8 years ago with Duplicolor bumper paint and it's still hanging in there.

In home depot there is paint called "Ultra Durable High Gloss Black" paint. It is really hard to chip and the paint sticks awesome. I have it on my grill, but I need to re-do it now.
