Spraying my Top Grille BLACK

How would I go about doing this then?

Halfords closes at 8PM what do I need to run and buy before it does?

Re: Spraying my Top Grille BLACK

I used Wilco grey plastic primer (once i'd cleaned the grille) and then used two tins of Black bumper and plastic paint from wilco.... Total cost - 9
