Just paint it. Or use the rubber coating bumper spray can stuff. There's a post about it in the body kit section right now actually.

No problem! LMC Truck is real good for OEM parts like that.

$200 is way overpriced man. I bought mine on ebay for $50 plus shipping brand new just a month ago. I had the outside painted to match the truck and the inner chrome. Instead I bought a new paintable shell and painted it total with paint by the end of it for $100 and I can still sell my grill to break even!

LMC truck is good for a lot of random things but shop around if you decide to buy one if the painting doesn't work out how you like.

Search on here and you'll find the guys who have done it and what they've used. Basically an adhesion promotor, primer, paint, and clear coat for plastic chrome parts.

Based on this thread it looks like you can easily remove the inserts to paint them.
