    I'm thinking of painting the Billet grill. I'm really leaning toward doing so, but how about a consensus...

    Black...

    Black and with front lip...
    The lip would be a sockmonkey vinyl as I don't want to paint it, if I were to sell it at some point.

    I don't have any other chrome on the truck, other than the license plate covers and probably wheels sometime in the summer.

    Oh yeah...If I paint it black, I'd like to get a small TRD logo to put in the corner too. Where is the best place to get that? Ebay or does someone on here sell them?

    Nah...I like the material used on the satoshi, but I'd rather have it flush at the front. I'd probably order the grill-craft one before I did the satoshi though. But right now, paint is cheaper.

    I ended up painting it today and it looks great! I'll post pics after I put it back on the truck.
