    So I think im gonna paint my grille this weekend. I want to go black (obviously) but was wondering what you guys think. My choices are gloss black, flat black, or bedliner. Im gonna use krylon fusion as a base coat to stick to the plastic, but was wondering what yall think about the different options I have. Im kinda leaning towords bedliner for rock chip purposes, and because my rear bumper (soon tobe front bumper aswell) are already done with the bedliner.

    Bedliner looks cool. Im a fan of color matched grille and bumbers but since one of your bumpers is already belinered id go ahead and match it

    Click my Sig Pic for my build thread. Too many to list here.
    I had mine color matched when I did my Satoshi. Even though both bumpers are done with bed liner. I think that way looks cleanest.

    I'm kinda thinking of doing bedliner for the front bumper too, cause the paint thats on it now is all chipped & rusty in spots. My biggest reason behind bedliner for the front is for rock chip prevention & from crap offroad
