Default Looking for silver 00+ grilles

I thought I saw a pic of someone'* black or some other dark color 00+ Bonneville with a silver painted grille a little while back but can't find it. Does anyone have a pic I can see?

Yeah, Tracy'* 00 SLE (Mid Life Crisis) has painted silver grill halves. And there were a few others that used a silver mesh material to fab up new grill halves on their 00+ Bonnevilles. Then you have Jim C. (Gumball) that used an alumunum material with horizontal sections to fabricate grills on his 00 SLE. They'll chime in soon, hold on.

They come out very easy…if you do it the right way… with the hood open, gently push up on the plastic front piece while pushing out the grill part. There’* two little tabs, one on each side. Be sure to push the grill OUT away from the engine bay…

Thanks so far. I'm hoping someone chimes in with another black one. I'm trying to decide if it will look good, or be too contrasting. It'* nice and subtle on the beige (or is that gray?), and goes good with the red.

mine'* charcoal grey, I went for it to match my silver rims ,it would look good on yours man, I can't tell if your corners are cleared but if they arent then your grilles would look awesome silver along with cleared corners.
