Anyone have a clue what a fair asking price would be for it,

I sold my stock big horn grille with chrome horizontals for like $75. I bought a chrome honeychrome grille for $125. Those are just for something to reference with.

Looks like you painted it flat black.

Have you considered just re-painting the grill part with actual color matching paint, and leave the emblem the way it is ?
A light sanding would make for great adhesion I would think...

I have considered that actually, I ordered a black mesh K2 grill, I got the idea when I had my grill off and from a distance the big open black in front looked cool so I thought the open black K2 mesh grille might look good. When I get that I might try to paint the original or sell it to try and recoupe a few bucks.

First time poster but have lurked for the past few months. I may be interested if you haven't sold it yet.

I would assume it would fit a 2010.

Also, from the pics does it really look more flat than black chrome? I hate the chrome bits on my truck so will be looking to black them out but not too black.

Thanks!

perhaps buffing or polishing the clear would have given it more of the gloss of black chrome? I was just about to try this on my rims and emblems, so this post has been fairly disheartening. I still want the shine of the chrome, just tinted.

Ya , it actually turned out good it just didnt look right on my truck, I was going for a dark look so I used quite a few coats, at 2-3 coats it almost looked bluish chrome which was pretty cool but not what I wanted.
