I painted my stock chrome grille insert black last night. I was considering getting a stock honeycomb insert to install but finally just went for it. Thanks to Shots for the tutorial on grille insert removal (its a sticky at the top of this thread). It was a great help. I removed the inserts, cleaned them with car wash soap and water, and hand dried them leaving them spotless. I used 2 coats of Duplicolor Adhesion Promotor followed by a few coats of Duplicolor gloss black. I focused on painting the front and top sides of the insert. The underside and back got almost no paint. I folllowed the gloss black with Duplicolor clear coat. I let everything adhere and dry overnight, then mounted it back up this afternoon. Big improvment over the stock chrome. I recommend this to anyone with a sport grille shell. Attached are pics of before and after. Enjoy!
