Got the grill painted up!

So today on my day off, I decided I'd get my grill painted up, since it was one of the simpler and cheaper mods on my list

Took me probabaly a total of 4 to 5 hours form start to finish! Now I'm thinkin' I need to paint the bumpers to match!

Sorry for the crappy cell-phone pics:

All masked off:


Primered up:


First layer on:


After first layer of clear coat on center section:


All done! Truck needs a good wash haha:


Has a pretty nice shine/reflection to it too! Already got bugs on it :


Thoughts? Opinions?

Thanks man! For the paint, I used some cheap primer (probably wasn't the best idea, but I already had it ). After a few layers of primer, I hit it with a few coats of black Rustoleum "Paint For Plastic", followed by another few coats of Rustoleum "General Purpose Crystal Clear". Turned out a lot better than I originally expected!

Looks good man, I was gonna paint the gray on mine black, it's a aftermarket replacement, and the gray is going fast... I wonder how the whole thing would look on a black truck

Looks good Kevin! The small things make a BIG diff in the look of a truck IMO
