Painting My Grill

Well I decided to go for it. I have the chrome lariat grill, and I decided to black out the horizontal inserts black. I am going for a good two-tone look. Its drying right now and i'm about to put some clear coat on it. I'll post some pics when I'm done!

Here's some pics before i put them on. sorry for the bad quality, its from my phone

i actually dont have the honeycomb stuff. i have horizontal chrome pieces. almost like mini billet inserts. i painted those, and the surround will still be chrome..
