its black stamped metal... will need to be shot with primer.

if youre doing this yourself, shoot it with etching primer. if youre taking it to a shop to have it professionally shot, dont touch it and let them do everything.

using spray paint on anything with the plan of having it professionally painted later will only cost you more money in the long run. 2 part paint and primer that paint shops use do not mix with previously spray painted items due to the aerosol chemical mixed in with the paint. whatever part or piece you shoot with spray paint will have to be taken back to metal for the professional grade primer to stick properly to (otherwise it will most likely fail)
