painting front spoiler

Ok so as some of you suggested, I am going to paint my front spoiler from grey to black.
I was just wondering what the best way of doing it is, take the actual lip off and spray, or just mask the hell out of my front end and spray it while it is still attached...
I will be using Trim Black paint btw...

Red would look better. Undo whatever you did to the turn signals.

There is a high heat engine or rotor paint you can get at Autozone that is pretty close to I have put it in my bed to cover up some scratches and it's a very close to matching.

if you take it off, i would try to remove the little bottom flap. you might realize you like the truck without it. thats what i did anyway.
i never liked those things on any car

I painted the texture black, and it really freshens the look in the front. Looks like a brand new lip :)

looks good, did you clear coat it also? again, change the turn signals, that doesn't look right. Time to change your avatar!
