: I read your disclaimer. Have you considered masking off the front edge of the grill (maybe an 1/8" back on the fins)then spraying the rest with a matte aluminum paint? This would hide the imperfections and look more like a metal die casting.


Personally, I think that it would look better without anymore silver on the fins with the exception of the frontal chrome. When you add depth perception into the occasion, I think having more contrast will be better. The chromed fronts will have more definition. If the fins were finished front to back with a similar colour, wouldn't the whole thing just look gray and fuzzy?

I will follow up with a post after I receive and install the new grill pieces.
