Help with painting steel

Just received the HMF 50" light bar mount ( This thing is really nice.

They come bare steel. Does anyone have experience painting bare steel? Looks like they need to be cleaned with something, primed, and then hit with a few coats of paint. Looking for recommendations on how best to do this and recommended products for a nice finish. Or just take it somewhere :-).

If you decide not to PC them, get a self-etching primer and a high quality spray paint.
