I painted my headlight inserts and kidney grille. I was not happy with the result of the grille - it looked ok, but had a rough finish. I think using spray paint to paint such a large body piece might take some practice - sanding/priming, etc... If you have access to a spray gun, I'm sure you can get better results.

PS - I took out the painted grille and put a chrome one back in...

Do it professionally...I don't think you'll like the result of a DIY front bumper paint...smaller things maybe...but a bumper addon?
