Default Painted grill second gen

Didnt have anything to do tonight so i decided to do this.
My first dodge ram was a green 01 sport and it had the body color grill and bumpers that i always liked. My new truck is also an 01 but it is a laramie/slt, dark garnet red pearl with chrome grill and bumpers.

I havent seen a second gen in this color with the sport color match option. I had an extra chrome grill and a can of dupli color match paint so i decided to paint it.

I sanded the chrome down and used a self etching primer and the duplicolor paint and a clearcoat. I think it came out pretty good...Didnt have time to put it on yet but here are the results. Will take a pic when i get it on the truck... Hope it doesnt look funny with a body color grill w/ chrome bumpers but we'll see!

Love it! Color matched perfectly. I much prefer the color matching grilles/trim over the chrome, so it looks very good.

Looks awesome!! I love the colour matched grills and bumpers on these trucks. I'm not a huge fan of the chrome bumpers on these trucks

I am not a big fan of chrome, so I think your new grille looks great! I am doing mine in flat black with semigloss clear over. i hope it turns out as nice and smooth as yours did!
