    i picked up a grill from TY and i was rethinking painting the metal gloss black as it is currently flat black right now. the outside border is chrome

    should i paint the metal and the black plastic around the metal gloss black or leave the plastic flat black and just paint the metal gloss black?

    please let me know what you think

    I'm a fan of the gloss since that's what I have, but you could always go with satin for something in between.

    I like the look of the gloss black. You could always repaint it if you end up not likeing it.

    I ran a chrome Satoshi with Grillcraft mesh which is a glossy look.

    That grill looks beast. I'm kind of swaying towards a tarnished metal color like worn battlearmor with a black tint If I can find a color to match my wides lol

    Your skidplate is awesome too btw

    Look into the Rustoleum Hammered paints. I did my emblem using 2 different hammered colors to give it a unique look.

    BeardedWeirdo I love that grille and emblem, it looks sick. :thumbsup:

    I think the glossy black is the way to go.
