Get the matching paint to your car in a spray can, or any color you like. An adhesion promoter. And clear coat.
I just did this for my chrome mirror caps and it holds like factory paint.
Clean and sand grill with 400 paper. Clean again.
2 coats primer (adhesion promoter) follow instructions but it's 5 to 10 minutes apart. Let dry for 30 minutes.
Apply a couple of paint coats. If you have leaks, wet sand and repaint.
Let dry and clear coat a couple of layers.
Don't forget respirator :-)
