I painted my grilles at first, as well. The paint chipped constantly, even with repeated sanding, and applications of clear coat. I finally gave in and bought the black out grilles on ebay. I am MUCH happier now. DIY is cool, but sometimes the ready-made is just easier and works out better in the long run.
