Silver Rods

If anyone has a picture of silver rods could you please post it? I have a titanium silver body paint and im thinking about painting matching rods but i dont know if it will look good or if it will look cheap/plastic-like.

Is there a way to remove these rods without leaving behind those brackets on the grille?

I'll take some pictures tomorrow of them. I have had them done for a while now and after many washes and about 1500 miles roughly no chips or peeling.
