Default Painting Fender Flares and Grille

I'm going to paint my fender flares and grille tomorrow. What type of paint should I use on these? Black trim paint? Or just ordinary automotive spray paint?

Thanks!

Yeah, I was planning on doing the bumper as well. I think it will make the truck look a lot better.

Mother's Back To Black is an outstanding product for non-painted flares.

I didn't prime it. I did take some fine sandpaper and scuffed the flares up so the paint would stick.
