Default Painted grille /more COTM pictures

Yeah, painted the 2 grille inserts. The color matches my 20 spoke rims perfectly. You actually notice the grille now

nice, very nice, it definitely stands out now! Do you plan on re-coating it in a few months, just because that is an area that gets hit with road debris, bugs and such and when you go to wash it, over time it is going to peel, i would recommend another coat or two, just to make sure it lasts!

It wil definitely peel. Mine'* been painted for about 6 weeks now and it is slowly returning to it'* original black color.

It'* due for a repaint this weekend as a matter of fact. Have not even used a high-pressure washer on it--just bugs, etc. I believe. It'* worth it though. Definitely adds a lot of detail that wasn't there when stock black.

Grill looks great! It does bring out the rims so much better, doesn't it? What kind of paint did you use? I haven't clearcoated mine yet...only 2 weeks on my paintjob...despite the barrage of bugs pelting it, it'* holding up great so far.
