Default Front Grille Paint Job

Ok so im getting sick of the fade black/ grey grille on my truck lol. I have seen some paint their grille gloss black and it looks good. Im thinking of going with Flat black but havent seen a pic of one, or what it will look like. What you guys think? If you have pics put them up. Thanks

I think the flat black would look just as good as the gloss black

Any of you guys ever painted a billet grille? I'd like for mine to be black instead of billet.
