Default Grille not gona be painted.....for now

i wanted to paint my grille white, but my parents said it looked tacky....mom hit a deer a few years back and when they repaired it it came back white, they didn't like it and had it painted black....so they have seen it on the car....i dont recall seeing that...i was probaly about 8 or 9 and didn't care, and it was lonly like that for a week or so....

i showed them pictures on the forums of some White Cars with a white grille...(mainly Hans') and i think it looks good but they dont....so i guess it wont happen right now....and the car is still legaly my dads...he hasn't signed it over to me yet but basicaly its mine....in a few months when im 18 we're gona go to the DMV and it'll legaly be under my name
