Default 89' Front Bumper???

Hey I got a 89' and the bumper has a thin'ish layer of surface rust on it, I want to re-paint it to look better so it doesn't make my truck look like a POS. Do I need to take it off and sand off the surface rust. primer then paint or just paint it with no primer ?? Should I use a gloss or a flat black? I used flat behind my hub caps. (don't laugh...) Any body that has done this before or has ideas????

So just tape off and cover up where I don't want over spray and just do it on the truck?

i would take it off because the top part of the bumper would be hard to spray because the fenders and valance kind of overhang it
