Painting mic grilles

I want my shure wireless grill to be black. Is spray paint okay? Of course i know to remove the grill from the mic components... Is there a certain kind of paint to use?

Any auto grade paint really works. Just be sure to pay attention to the mics earth precautions. My sm58 has an earthed grille

Take the foam out of it first also.

Always a good idea to thoroughly clean whatever you are trying to paint first, some good soap and water, and rinsed well, dried thoroughly. Primer is a good idea too if you'd like it to last longer.

Anybody know any particular paint? I want to make sure it'll stand up to spit and road use...
