    Yea, it should blend your headlights with your black grill and smoke bug guard. It should look good. JMO.

    do it for sure, it is easier than you think, If you are worried about it being to much black, I did mne in a charcoal mettalic color that I really like.

    Thanks, i used a couple coats of flat black Krylon Fusion to bond with the plastic, then top coated with Rustolem charcoal metallic. You can kinda see the paint cans in this pic, I will see if I can get a better pic of the rustolem can. Also the paint dried a little darker than it is in this pic.

    I was wanting to do something like that (charcoal) but wasn't sure the other paint would stick... Doh (per Homer Simpson) or face palm (per what's his name from star trek) :annoyed:

    Thanks...... :D

    Yeah it sticks fine, Like i said just use the krylon fusion as a base coat. Once it is sealed back up, it shouldn't be a problem.

    Always working on the stereo, painted the front skid plate black to match the truck, debadged , toy tech ultimate lift kit, light racing UCAs, ARB bumper Looking into a supercharger and new exhaust.
    I voted no to the black. The charcoal metallic would probably work though.

    If you are going to keep that base grille, try to color match it.
