Different tip for the bars. You can use the rustoleum spray paint. I've used it on everything from metal tie outs, metal bed frames, xbox 360 controllers, cars etc. It comes in a high gloss version that works quite well. I don't have any examples but I like the stuff, have about a billion different colors of it in my garage just in case haha.
