    My truck is in the shop having some minor body work done.

    Decided it was time for some color matching.

    The shop guy is getting me a colormatched rear bumper.

    I just ordered a colormatched grille from http://www.partsgeek.com/

    it listed the paint code 209(which is the bsp paint code)

    Anybody get this grille? I'm just hoping I don't have to paint it.

    I was just looking at those. I don't think they're color matched. They come in matte black or chrome I think. I think they're designed to be painted after the fact.

    Oh absolutely. Even if you screw up it's easy enough to just keep trying on the paint color.
