Well, I finally got around to painting my grille and thought it'd be nice to have a thread with pictures of painted grilles.
Mine was in pretty rough condition and the gray inserts were all faded and chipped. I used spray paint.

Also defines the front a bit more by making the chrome pop out more. I would definitely recommend it.
Oh, and I'm planning on getting a 2005 grille in the future, but this was a $25 fix to hold me off until then.
