Painting over chrome plated plastic.

I don't like chrome and have a plastic grill that I would like to paint.

Suggestions on how to prep the material and what to paint it with?

I already have SPI Epoxy Primer so I would like to use that if it is suitable.

I checked with My paint suplier and told him I wanted to paint over plastic and aluminum. He sold me all the primers, thinners, addatives etc I needed.
