Color matched grille

I have a 2011 Overland and want to color match my grille Dark Charcoal.
So i ordered a new grey trailhawk grille and it's currently being re-painted.
Before I swap out my chrome grille, i think i want to paint the black mesh silver, similar to the Altitude grille.
I'm thinking i'll just spray paint the plastic mesh. Can someone with an Altitude confirm the color of the mesh...Is it actually a mirror chrome finish? It doesn't appear that shiny but that's prob because they tend to get dust buildup.

I suppose i can sell my original chrome grille when i pull it off.

Thanks-

Re: Color matched grille

It's more like shiny and satin like bright silver color. Jeep calls it platinum chrome.

Re: Color matched grille

Thanks.. On a positive note, i was able to remove the chrome grille without bumper removal in 10 minutes.
So, i may keep the mesh black for now to see how it looks.
Anyone looking for a chrome grille with brand new Overland mesh backing, lemme know.
Thanks-
