Matte Black Hood and Grille

Hi guys. Wanted to get a few opinions...

I have a black/black 2013 JKUS with a black painted hardtop, 17" series 69 Pro Comp flat black rims, 33" duratracs (white lettering on outside), and tinted windows.

My question: I'm thinking of having my hood and grille painted matte black, what do you guys think?

Thanks,

Mark

you can try plasti dip, but matte black / gloss black seems too fast too furious type of thing.
