Black grill with color in the slots?

So I was checking out aliexpress.com for some ideas of cheap "toys" to add to my Jeep and came across this...
"Jeep Wrangler JK Front Grille Racing Grills" etc etc
Looks like cosmetically it would be pretty cool (though not for that price and not from China). I've never seen something like that, so I was wondering... has anyone blacked out their grill but left their color showing in the slots?

That's pretty pricey for a cover. There are many members that have plasti dip their front grill for $6. Plasti dip would be the cheapest way to do it and probably more durable than that cover.

I didnt plasti dip my grill but I did plasti dip my grill inserts.

Oh god. I forgot about the Dragon. But yeah... kind of like that - black grill with "inserts" or masking around the slots in the body color.

I don't plan on buying that cover. I want to know if anyone's got something that looks similar.

Basically, imagine what that cover would do and how it would only cover the flat surface. Has anyone done it with paint?

I would imagine just take the grill off and mask the holes
You could always do it with plastidip so if it turns out bad you just peal it off

You could buy some black grill inserts, and paint or plastidip them?
