Should I paint???

Hey everyone! My name is Billy and I have gone to this site so many times for help with my car and finally decided to become a member.

First question:
I've been thinking about painting my rims and possibly the grill of my '97 ranger black with some sort of Dupli-Color paint. Just wanted to get some feedback on if it is a good idea and if it would look good? (because im REALLY unsure about the grill). Would really appreciate some feedback and tips.

If you paint them, I'd use plastidip. No prep is required aside cleaning the wheels and you can peel the dip off whenever you want.

For my grill I used the rustolium bed liner (spray paint can one), but if your looking for a complete truck re-spray then go plastidip
