Well I work at a body shop in the winter. So it makes more since to paint it. Already ordered paintable caps. I'm gonna leave the metal piece chrome. Even though i hate chrome. Only thing that I like chrome is wheel. Not a fan of the Plasti dip to be honest. I'm just gonna paint it. Hopefully next week. Gonna paint the pillar between the two side windows black also.

I just painted my black bumper piece to match my truck and it's not the same exact color because of the way the black piece is textured. They don't make a bumper that could be painted! I looked everywhere! It looks okay, but I'll probably end up taking my entire front end off and switching it out for a new one! Your grille looks good though!

Yeah i got it online. Ebay i think. And yes they do do make bumper caps that are made to be painted. I have the part number somewhere if you want it. There smooth not textured. Threw gm at the body shop there 204 bucks. I got mine threw keystone for 155? Something like that. Hope fully it looks alright. Gonna scuff the heck out of the bottom piece to get paint to stick. I painted my mirrors a year ago and there still isn't a chip in them. And I drive alot of gravel. And thanks for the compliments guys!! But I'll prbly take it off someday soon. I want a stock one that i can paint white. So if anybody has one! Ill trade or buy it from ya!!

If your going all white I would look into painting the thick boarder of the grille white. Just a thought.... I love the looks of an open mouth grille. It would be one of a kind

Such a pain getting paint to stick to it tho. Wish I could find an 06 ss grille and paint it. But there 550 bucks.
