Default 01 Grille Paint?

Has anyone painted this style grille black? Does anyone have a picture of their truck with this grille painted black, maybe on a white truck? I wanna get the egg crate mesh grille but don't wanna spend money on a grille right now. Post them up if you've got em. Thanks.

Never seen anyone paint it before.

If you get the honey combo style grille make sure to get the whole surround also.

You cant just pop your old center section out and place it in there.

Went for it and painted my grille black. Took it all apart (thanks to tutorials on the site) and did it right. So here is the end result. What do ya think?
