Painting Sahara bumper inserts

I have a 2012 Flame red Sahara and I would really like to have the silver bumper inserts painted red. Anyone have any luck painting them?

I'd say lightly sand with fine grit sandpaper, wipe down with 99% isopropyl alcohol, allow to dry, proceed with light coats of spray-bomb paint, allowing to dry between coats until even.
