No problem

Some things that I have experimented with was leaving the outside of the grill a black and then just painting the slats the other color (flat, gloss etc..) giving it a 2 tone look

Also depends on which grill as well


The one I have now is an unusal one, never had one like this before and I am just doing a flat black/matte clear on it for the owner along with an altezza emblem mod

Wow thanks for the compliment :cool:


Not saying I am a god, I just know body work and painting from my father and then working on the IS

I am just trying to help :)


I have my 2-toned grill, and I will have a flat black grill done this week if you want pics?

(taken me a bit I ran out of matte clear)

i think hes talking about the other Altezza grill. the the metal one with the bars. not the CF TRD mesh grill.
There is not a metal grill for the car, you must be talking about the "chrome" Z grill def plastic :lol:

Painted a couple of them myself
