When was the last time it was drained and flushed? Coolant is cheap. If you are going to paint the raditor just remove it at the same time you flush and refill the system.

Basic spray paint should be ok, just don't go very heavy on the fins. A very light dusting at most.

If you want to do it right then Eastwood sells radiator specific paint if you can't find it at the local auto store.

Unless you saw it get done or have the receipt, I wouldn't trust someone telling me that "it got done."
