    I just wanted to share what happened when I painted my grille outside in humid Miami weather. When I painted this it was about 90% RH, which is the norm for Miami. I used Duplicolor OEM Black Toyota spray paint, look how it came out, ugly and dull with these little white specks

    Now look at the difference when I painted the same grille inside in an air condition room

    For this metal grille I used Krylon Fusion Gloss spray paint and once again I painted this outside in the humid Miami weather RH 90%

    Here is the same metal grille painted in a air condition room using the same Krylon Gloss spray paint

    So for those who are new to painting, like me, learn from my mistakes and don't paint outside in a high humidity environment. I hope this helps someone.
