    Has anyone ever seen a painted black billet grille? I was thinking about doing this but have never seen one black before so I don't know how it would look. If you have any pics please post them.

    Just rattle canned it with rustoleum. Plastidip might hold up better. The paint started to chip a little. I was going to have it powder coated but did a Satoshi instead.

    I have a black billet grill, but no pics. I bought it as polished aluminum and I had it powder coated. That should be more durable than a rattle can. Been in place for 11 months and no chips or fading yet.

    A friend of mine owns a business and has their own powder coating line, so he did it me as a favor. :)
