Default What do you think of my grills?

I'm thinking of painting my grill, it'* the regular flat black right now, and the paint between the grill and the chrome trim has some problems, so im either gonna paint it silver or glossy black, Also should i put a clear coat on it? And yes it'* photochopped, one of our moderators (post ***** ) couldn't tell that....




And for comparing reasons, or incase you don't know what a bonneville grill looks like by now....

The black definitely looks best on the Chrysler/Buick style grilles.

i think it looks so much better now with it being silver. the black was nice, but it adds class when its not so dull looking IMO
