Painting Front Grill Question

I have a 2003 WJ Laredo. This is my cheap Jeep. I can not stand the chrome grill on the black Jeep. As soon as it gets warm I'm going to tint the tail lights w/ clear coat mixed with black paint (basically the same as VHT NiteShade). This got me to thinking what would it look like if I painted over the chrome grill with this? Has anyone ever done this? Does it give a black chrome look? Or is it simply black b/c there's no light behind it? Just wondering if anyone has done this or if I should just paint it black?

Re: Painting Front Grill Question

you could try the "tint" if it works out I think it'd be neat, if not then paint it black

Re: Painting Front Grill Question

I say just paint it black!
If you really want to look for that black chrome look I would look into this.. Buy Duplicolor Shadow Chrome Black-Out Coating, Black/Clear, 11 oz. 2-Can Aerosol Kit SHD1000 at Advance Auto Parts

More than enough to do the grill, and other accessories if you so desire.
