painting the grille

I took a look at my car at the body shop today. She looks BEAUTIFUL!!!!! shocked

Somehow, they managed to get a grille made for the Celica right from the Toyota factory (yes, that's right. a factory grille) I didn't know they made grilles for Celicas! But it looks sweet, IMO.

Anyways, it's black plastic but I would like to paint it and the small, upper grille white. What do you think???

dontmesswithkram said that I should leave it black, or paint it a different color like gunmetal.

Maybe I'll go for the whole red/gunmetal look instead. What do you think??

IMO, paint only if the grille is metal mesh so the mesh doesn't rust.

I think I'm gonna go for painting it gunmetal. It's next to black, and it will be a little bit noticeable but not as much as white would be.rolleyes
