I recently painted my silver parts black, using Krylon Fusion satin and Fusion Clear. I had the red parts painted also, and I'll unveil it on the "welcome" page when it's all put back together. A little sanding/prep, cleaning with soap and water, and a wipedown with odorless mineral spirits. Seems to have taken very well. Hope it comes out as nice as yours!! Best wishes.
