Not the trim ring, the mesh or whatever is behind it.

ah, it has black vertical bars inset on the grille, it isn't really nice like the bonny'* honeycomb look. It'* just plastic vertical bars that are really thin. They'd be hard to paint, I'm not sure if it'd look good or nto, it'* hard to tell. I think that gold trim might look good on this car though considering the color of it instead of the chrome.

I got the Plastikote Bumper Chrome from NAPA.

The only stuff I could find at Walmart was the Chrome Krylon which looks more like grey with silver flakes in it... blah... not good.

Go with the Plastikote Bumper Chrome

I don't have time to PS it right now..... but maybe tomorrow.
Unless there'* another kind soul here who might be able to do it for you... hint hint.

I think several PS'* are in order.... chrome... maybe bronze metallic and/or gold or such. Just to get an idea.

I used the Krylon "chrome" on purpose because I didn't want reflection. I wanted a silver that matched my rims...check the sig...
