    ordered a mesh grill from grillcraft yesterday, and it's supposed to arrive today. i am wondering what you guys recommend for spray paint to black the area behind... i understand matte black and high temp resistant work the best. so, what do you guys recommend? thanks.

    I just used some flat black krylon paint too. I don't think it needs to be high temp stuff, just be sure to mask off your truck before you start painting. Get some blue painters tape and plastic or news paper too...

    Here is mine all done...

    Same for me. You don't need a heavily coat. Just enough to darken it and take the shine out.
