Default Grill Color.....

Ok, next upgrade, the grill! I'm thinking eather white or the spray on chrome?! I'm thinking white because it would be more monotone with the rest of the car but the chrome looks sweet to! Let me know what you think!

I am gonna say chrome, but only on the condition that you get a chrome theme going throughout the car. If you keep everything else the same, then keep it black. My grille is painted white, its nothing special or exciting.

Do chrome or silver, and ONLY the honeycomb.

I voted for Chrome because that'* what I'm going to be doing also! If not then white might look good as well.

i just took my grill off of my car and masked off all but the mesh part. took it outside and sprayed 4 coats of chrome paint on them. they turned out great and gave my car a good look as you can see
