    This is what I did then you could always get some Krylon Satin spray paint for plastic and black it out more... Just an idea.. Krylon works great! Just use rubbing alcohol on it and wipe down and paint several coats... Easy stuff.. Get creative...

    I've thought about doing the same thing, but now i think i want to color match. Just remove the front grille assembly. Tape off the areas you don't want painted, and then start shooting paint! Use Krylon Fusion for plastics. If you can't find Kyrlon Fusion, then Rust-Oleum Plastics at Home Depot will work just the same. Just make sure to properly prep the areas you want painted.
