Default YES or NO?

What do you think about paint my grill black?


Here is what the grill is lookin like, My only concern is chipping away the paint, do you have any suggestions on something that will protect the paint but not make it shiny?

What exactly do you want to paint? The chrome too?
Since it's plastic you'll need a flex additive for the paint
so it won't peel and chip. And ID give it 3-4 coats of clear to
protect it from the elements and rocks and such. With the flex additive in
the clear also.

Ps that d-bag friend of mine wants to go with power bass instead
since his cousin has one.

Why not find an OEM black grille or find someone with a black one and ask if they will trade.

I did that with my Audi, I had a aftermarket mesh grille on my s4 and I wanted the OEM Audi Rings grille I put an ad up on Craigslist and less then 4 hours after posting it I had someone message me and we did the trade.

Painting chrome covered plastic never really works imo.

matte and flat are two different finishes. I'd suggest flat for the finish you want to go for. It will look like the rest of the black that's on there already. And i hope you scuffed that chrome up with a brillo pad before you painted or you'll be painting it again. The "chrome" on new cars is just a special coating that looks like chrome so you paint it like paint if that makes sense to ya lol. And if you're rattle canning it you'll DEFINITELY be painting it again.
Unless you're using plastikote from rustoleum. But getting it just right requires A LOT of VERY light coats. You don't want it to be one wet coat of paint you want it to look like it needs 3-4 more coats to fully be painted. Then wait about 10 minutes and spray another light coat. You'll put around 7 coats to get it coated all the way black. I think the cr-v will look sick with a flat black grill and wheels (hint,hint).

Haha flat black wheels I kinda had that before and I didnt like that to much so I got some other ones.. I got some matte clear and it kept the color the same so its all good!

I attached pictures of the old and new wheels. I just got back from bropping it off at the shop to get painted black.
