Default Has anyone Painted the Front Grilles??

I've ordered my Turbo with painted side sills, painted rear Facia, Painted side vents in black and black handles.

That leaves the front grills (Fog light bezels) and centre lower grille as the only black textured parts on the entire car... I hate the look

Has anyone taken the grills off and painted them to match the exterior colour of the car???

PICS??

First thing I do when I get the car is rip off the front bumper take off the grills and paint them lol!

yes, I have, its an S, but should give you an idea. Car had a lot of chips when I bought it so I had the front repainted, and also all of the dull trim. Also had it all clear bra'd afterwards.

It makes a much cleaner look, imo.

The answer is, you can do it. disassemble what ever is necessary and paint the part. This should only be done by a body shop if you want a perfect job. let them worry about the details
