Pics of a Painted Grill on a white 1st gen??

I have a White 2001 Tacoma PreRunner and I'm considering Painting the chrome around the grill and headlights semi gloss black. I've been doing some searching to find Pics of one to see what it would look like, but can't find any. any suggestions or help would be greatly appreciated, thanks

Note: I have little to no experience in painting, and this wasn't hard to do.
Total of about 3 days for rims fenders and grill.

So just finished up looks great. Sorry for amount of pictures.

grille will never hold up to rattle can. I even tried bedliner paint once... Only solution was to sand and paint with a base,clear automotive grade paint. for a small project a cheap detail gun will work just fine...
