Grille Paint scheme

I wanted my Jeep to be a little different from all the other red ones around here I see. What do you think?

Nice job! I think it looks pretty bad ass! What kind of paint did you use?

I painted it with a semi gloss black out of a rattle can. The front had a small dent in the right fender and rock chips from being towed. I sanded it by hand and taped it all off to paint. Here's a progression in pictures.

Looks sweet! I am considering the same concept on the front face of my fenders. I went with the black grille inserts for mine just for the little extra difference over most others around here. Nice job!

I did the same thing on my Blue Jeep last year. Except, I used bed liner spray instead of regular paint. I was originally just looking for a way to the grill metal from chipping of and rusting.
