Painting the honeycomb grille
Has anyone tried this? Mine is getting that faded gray look and I want it to be black again. I'm afraid to take a rattle can at it, since there's so many freakin holes! Any advice is greatly appreciated.

I painted mine when I had the chrome one on. Spray adhesion promoter first, then with the rattle can spray at different angles.

How long did that take you??

The taping was about 45 minutes, the painting wasn't bad. I think I had around 3 coats of the blue on it.

Did it chip at all? Or did you put a clear coat on it?

It chipped because I did not use an adhesion promoter. I had it for quite a long time untill I put my regular grill back on. I don't think I put clear on it or not, it was awhile ago.

Okay, Thanks Werm! I'll use some adhesion promotor, and then about 3 coats, with a good clear coat.
