Default 300H grill black out modification

I really liked the way they blacked out the grill on the 460 regardless of the body color, and thought it was particularly striking if you happened to have a white body. Grills on all the sport models look much better to me all blacked out.

I first thought of doing it with 3M vinyl in a flat black or even in a carbon fiber black which would look great but different. 3M said their the vinyl on an exterior surface might only have a five year life and wrapping each little vertical bar would be tedious.

So I went to paint and did it with a good quality flat back and then a non-gloss satin clear coat which also gives it good protection from love-bugs etc. Most of the cost ($270) was in labor to remove the bumper and all the pieces.
