Default Grill Mod

Hey guys. In looking through the mods that a lot of people have done, I have not seen this one done. I know a lot of guys are swapping the horizontal grills with the honeycomb ones. But, has anyone tried painting the horizontal grill black? I'd love to see some pics.

Also, I love the look of the grill emblems (like the ones that say "Mopar" or "Hemi") where did you find those?

Thanks all.

I painted mine black. It lasted for about 6-7 months before the rocks and bugs and everything else started chipping away at it. Heres a pic of when I did it. The chipping is why I ended up switching over to a honeycomb. When it was fresh, it looked awesome

I kept it only on the inside part, I didn't like the matte black grill on black because it felt like a work truck. Pretty easy to do and remove so give it a try..

Get a can of the Glossifier, it will shine it up just above the flat, about Satin.
