Your best bet is just to paint it and put a protective gloss/layer on.

New to the painting process but sand/prime/paint/protective cover?

Correct me if im wrong in which im sure i am.

But vinyl will look stupid probably and wear over time.

get some plasti-dip from home depot. spray it on, its black, and you can always peel it off if you don't like it cuz its just rubbery

Vinyl is the way to go.
I did both, I had plasti-dip-ed my 2010 front grill before, and then afterwards, I gloss vinyled it.

Plasti-Dip ftw.
plasti dip--so easy, buy some clear coat too. If you mess up with plasti dip you can peel it off and start over. I peeled it off my front lip and the paint was exactly like it was before i plasti dipped it
YES! This stuff is great. Comes in a spray can, just clean the surface well before you apply it and do it in several thin coats, letting dry in between.
