How prime?
Do I need a clear coat in the end?

1) Put valance in car
2) Drive to autobody shop
3) Pay professional to paint valance
4) Enjoy years of nice looking car

LOL! Totally kidding. It's the steps I would do because I suck at painting. Just take your time if you are doing it yourself.

thats actually some good advice. by the time you buy all the equipment and materials, you will pay more than double what it will cost to have it shot in a paint booth and buffed. you can save cash by installing it yourself.

So sand it with water till there is no shiny parts,spray a primer (any suggestion,any shop?Will I find one at AutoZone?) and buy a 16 oz of satin silver tl/m7049 to spray twice on it without clear coat?
Right?

You will need clear coat and you will not find the rattle can clear coat you need or Satin Silver at Autozone. You'll have to have a body & paint supply make you a rattle cans of 2 stage Satin Silver and Clear Coat. Be aware it's unlikely you'll be able to get a good match doing it yourself.
Do yourself a favor, save the headache and take the lip to a body shop for paint.

couldnt have said it better. take it from sombody that has been doing body work on the side for many years. about the only thing you could do is clean it and sand it. depending on the roughness of the material and how bad of a shape it is in you will need from 80 to 400 grit paper. let the body shop prime it and paint it for you. you will be glad you did.

+1, but not joking. If you go to multiple places, you can find someone who will breakout of their price chart and just do it for you because they like cars, for a reasonable amount. You'll be a happy camper for years!

i used to do alot of painting, ive got a 2000.00 air system, over 1000.00 in a couple guns, and all the other equipment, but as bad as i wanted to shoot it myself i couldnt buy the base coat/ clear coat, reducers and additives to shoot my own scoop for the 100.00 i paid to have it done.( but the reds are the most expensive paint too) i went back later and they shot my 1/4 louvs for another 100.00 and they did a awesome job.

When it comes to color and quality match, you can't beat a body shop price. Unless you have a paint booth, you run the risk of getting dirt/dust in the paint. Nothing like having a fly stuck to your new paint job when you check on it in the morning. Like amustangrocks said, $100 is nothing for piece of mind. If you screw it up, you have to kick your own butt.

I see that you already finished, but Spay Paint Directions is a good walkthrough of what to do. And its also a good place to order exact matches for paint colors.
