I have a black onyx 01 IS3- and the grille that year came in a dark grey- has anyone ever painted it? if so, what kinda paint did you use? I was also thinking of painting the "L" on the front- so that it had that black pearl look to it...
any tips?

i painted mine...its pretty easy...take it off the car, tape off what u don't wanna paint...in my case it was the chrome rim around the grill and the emblem...and i painted it silver. came out good.

make sure to spray the back w/ a few coats first, then do the front...

normal spray paint works good...i used krylon

did you use anything to coat it against paint chips? and how many coats did you apply?
