Anyone painted their stock grille?

Hey guys,

Has anybody sanded down and painted their stock grille? If so, would you mind posting a picture. I'm thinking about doing it.

my grille is already beat up so i didn't really need to sand it that much just enough to take the "shiny" off, then hit it with some primer then i got rustoleum flat black and went to town.
