Painting a hot grill shell?

The grill shell on our 28 ford fits very tight to the radiator. Have to assume it will get very hot. We want to paint it to match the car (Dupont BC/CC). Anything I can, or should, do to help? Spray something on the inside of the shell??

Nope... Don't worry about it. Not going to hurt a thing. Your radiator should be no hotter then the engine coolant and a couple hundred degrees won't hurt the paint.

I've painted engines with PPG bc/cc. No problem!

... Oops you said Dupont... well I haven't done that, Sorry!

But, it should be fine.
