Any good quality spray pack should do. Do it indoors (if possible) and let the paint cure for as long as possible.

I used a brand called SEM color was Trim Black.... After one year no knicks or scrapes on it... next im sanding down my kidney grill and re painting it with the SEM brand (used krylon before and it didn't hold up so shwell).
