I did mine last winter when I had the engine out.  After grinding off any 
rust I primered and sprayed with matching paint to my car color - from a 
local auto paint supplier.  Although I'm not a professional painter by any 
means - after reinstalling all the wiring, etc it looks great as any minor 
defects are covered by the many attachments.  I think George mentioned the 
car color spray cans - my supplier has these but I just sprayed with a small 
gun and a quart of paint and it went OK - Not going for a show car.  They 
also offer many different types of primer in both bulk and spray - ask and 
they will get you the correct one for what you're doing and to bond with the 
specific brand paint you use.

Good Luck
