Suggested Paint for Front Grill?

So I ordered my ss/tc grill for the balt, it looks lighter than my stock lt grill... =/ ...is there a suggest paint/primer for "non-chip" applications such as the Krylon Outside chair paint or anything? I have krylon primer already so i can use that unless the overcoat conflicts with krylon type paints...i also have rustoleum already...just regular flat or gloss black, can't remeber...so the question is what kind of paint is suggested that wont chip at all, or easily?

2008 Black Cobalt LT Sedan - SOLD
2009 Rally Yellow Cobalt SS/TC Coupe - SOLD
2002 Alpine White Impreza WRX - CURRENT

If he paints it, it's gonna look like shit IMO.

(Not knocking your painting skills)

Just stating my opinion on what color it should be.
