Tuxedo Black Grill Surround...........

Well, I finally took the time to pull off the chrome grill surround and paint it to match the truck......Tuxedo Black. This is a 2011 CrewCab 4WD F-250 and I've had the materials for a while now, but just not the time until this week while I was on vacation. I didn't post any pics of the "before", y'all know what the chrome one looks like, so......here they are:

02dura 09. I really like the look of the front end without the "Cs"......that is definitely a better look than mine. Thanks for posting that pic. Back to the drawing board for me.

@02dura09 What type of paint did you use for the chrome C's. I have an appointment in 2 weeks to have my front grill painted along with the rear platinum strip across my tail gate. The guy at the body shop said that he wouldn't paint the C's because the paint wouldn't bond properly. Just wondering if you did it yourself, and how it was done.

Where did you guys get your paint? This looks excellent and I think it'd make black wheels look less out of place.
