New street scenes grill installed today. What do you guys think?

I like it folks will see you comming it is bright gotta wear .
so you say your going to paint the inside flat black, that could look good.
i guess your thinking flat black because the grill is SOOOO BRIGHT??

If you're keeping the chrome on the rest of the truck, I'd say leave it as is... looks good! If you're going for more of a stealth look, then the flat black would look sweet. Decisions... decisions

The chrome shell I wanna paint to match the truck color and do flat black on the insert.

Eventually I want to put these Wheels on too:

Install sucked on this one. You take out the old insert and then there are these clips that you push over the shell and the grill. REAL PITA when I take it apart to paint I will figure another way of attaching it because the clips are gonna scratch the paint.
