Regardless, painting the grille is a waste of time....it will chip eventually. Been there done that.

true, it's pretty much going to chip/flake any way you look at it. unless it is powder coated or painted with rock chip paint.

Most like base/clear coat. Not sure how much that would cost or how long it would take, though.

haha yes it works very well, but the only downfall is the rough texture to the paint, but now days they make rock chip paint in many different colors or they make rock chip paint clear which enables you to put a base/clear over the rock chip to a color you want.

well as far as painting it and etc. the price on that shouldn't be too bad. I believe you will have most of your money in paint, not actually prep/painting it. yes and sadly they are all white or black, but black would go good with your GGP, but GGP would also look really good too.
