That looks great! The one thing I hate about the honeycomb grill was that they all fade. I painted mine about a year ago with the Krylon Fusion, and it's still going strong with no chips or peeling.

I know some people here have used spray on bedliner on their grill instead of paint, so I'm considering trying that. What paint did you use? have you tried spraying it with the hose to wash it yet?
i used krylon fusion on mine and it DIDNT FLAKE AT ALL. still to this day it looks brand new.
PAINTED GRILLE! YeeHaa!
