Grille and 3M Clear Bra

So my 2012 250 Lariat is on the way. I plan on clear shield/3m/invisishield/etc the front when it's in. One of the things that I really want is to at least get the matching grille surround. It seems that the primed grille surround itself is about $150... Is that legitimate or do I need to purchase the entire grille? I'm hoping to get it now and get it painted so it can sit for 30 days and cure before clearing it with film. Anyone have the correct PN? Does anyone sell them pre-paint matched? Does anyone come across people wanting the chrome bumpers? I'd definitely consider trading my chrome bumpers for some Adobe ones and clear those as well... Any input is appreciated!

From what I understand the king ranch is the only one that comes painted. But if you get an unpainted one you can paint it but you absolutely don't have to wait 30 days to 3m it

I think someone probably just figured on a number, but I have hear for a long time that paint truly does take a while to cure (3-6 weeks) even when the parts are baked to be dry to the touch to speed up the process. The issue is not putting the 3M on... I'm sure I get it put on as soon as it left the booth. The issue is whether it would all come off if they had to remove the 3m in the process to move it or get a bubble out. If you pulled on the paint, it wouldn't necessarily be completely cured to the grille until it had time to sit. I'll probably wait 2 weeks or so before I 3m it. Ordered the primed grille surround today. Once it comes in, i'll find a good shop and get it painted!

I have a contact for painting parts who said he'd do it for 100 bucks. Shop would charge 150-200 I'd guess.
