Default What kind of paint should I use on a basket?

I'm getting really close to finishing my TL sub. Since i'm firing the sub into the line, the basket will be exposed. Unfortunantly the basket on my HSU is rather unattractive. I'm wanting to paint it, and give it a more quality appearance. What paint should I use that will last? No sprays please. I dont want spray getting where it should be getting.

anything, well not quite.
You have to ensure that the volatiles in the paint do not degrade the adhesives/material of your cone, surround, spider, coil former and anything else non metallic.
That some research you have in store. Maybe a water based paint is suitable but judging by the smell they give off even they have some volatiles that are not h2o.
The manufacturer has it easy, they paint before assembly.
