Painted my original faded 1/4 vents recently and used Wurth satin black trim paint. This was suggested over SEM by my the owner of the body shop I use. He advised it lasts longer and is more durable than SEM and lays down easier even when humidity is elevated - like here in S. FL. Alcohol wipe and spray - zero primer. They turned out great.
