Use paint made for radiators only .
Regular paint is too thick and inhibits heat disapation.
I had an overheating problem with new 4 core radiator that was painted with regular paint after having the paint hot tanked off and repainting with the proper stuff the car no longer runs hot

I just had the radiator on my 66 redone, the radiator shop used a gloss black radiator paint on it. I had painted the surrounding area in gloss black rustolium, and they matched.

originally a semi-gloss black with a slightly different look than the original paint in the engine bay.

you should use lacquer paint to paint a radiator since enamel acts like an insulator. also, is best to put on a light coat of paint.
