Default 2000+ grill paint

I thought that this would look good so I went ahead and painted my grills. I think they cam out good. I painted with red first and then taped off to paint the black border.

Looks cool so far. I'd love to see some daytime shots with the whole car in the frame when you get to it

I think the fact that you actually took the time to tape off the grills and add that black border really payed off. I did mine Silver with duplicolor and an obscene amount of clear coat and their still holding up good after a salty winter. Goes well with your color theme.

I did this on my grill inserts over two years ago and they still look perfect today. Gotta take them out and soak them every once in awhile in the summer to get the bugs off, but they still look great. I painted mine a metallic silver in multiple light coats. No clear. I didn't want them to be shiny other than the metallic flake.

The black boarder is a nice touch!
