Painting suggestions

I have been tossing around the idea of painting my OEM chrome grill and both bumpers.

I have read alot where the grill starts chipping after just a short period of time.

Does anyone have any good suggestions? I have a very good paint guy in town as well, so paint work will get done the proper way.

Get you a black grill that way you don't have to worry about painting over chrome and have your guy put some flex agent and adhesion promoter and it won't chip

it looks like the black, chrome and Harley Davidson are the only ones they have.

Thats a let down. Anyone have a clue where to get a white sport edition? I have looked a decent amount and can't find one anywhere.

Aside from getting one used, I don't think you're gonna have much luck getting one already painted. Probably have to get a paintable one from LMC or something and have it shot with the color of choice.

For sport edition, you will have to go to the dealer.
