Grill paint?s

Parts fairy showed up today with my new lights today. They are tinted. I'm thinking about painting my grill also. The finish is coming off and needs to be replaced anyway. So if it looks like poo I'm not really out anything ya know.

Who's painted them. Any paint recommendations? Pics etc?
