Mine was just some "High performance" wheel paint i had left over from a job a year ago or so. It'* pretty glossy, i just prayed down and at an angle with the can. It seemed to cover great enough to not notice. It'* full on top and seems to fade i guess. Chrome paint might work good. Damn look at what i started.

Nice grill.... does anyone know where I might be able to buy some honeycomb stuff so I can do mine up similar to that? I currrently have gold wire mesh in my grill, but you can't really see it from far away.
