How do i paint my Grill?

I have 95 2500 and i would like to paint my grill black to match my truck and i was wondering what everyone uses to do this. Is it spray paint or some special kind of paint?
Thanks

they make a plastic bonding spray paint... if it's the grill part itself...
I used that on my Ranger, very pleased with results.

You can paint the chrome trim just like anything else, but it will not stick as well as a prepainted surface or the bare plastic sections on your grille. On that same note, unless you use a high quality paint (yes, you can get fairly good paint in a spray can)it will chip easily and flake with abuse from road debris and bugs. Either way,prep your parts thoroughly(make sure you sand them very well and or use a red scotchbright pad for the hard to reach areas) and use a good midcoat adhesion promoter(Bulldog can be bought at automotive paint supply stores and comes in spray cans). Try to stay away from the WALLY WORLD spray paint, spend the extra cash and get it from a supplier. I've had the painted for years with no issues. The extra effort makes the difference

Hey, Jbecker,
You could probably save yourself a little time and keep the original for a backup if you'd just get a black replacement grill. I just put one on mine for around $75.00 shipped to my door. Now I stored away the factory one in the box/plastic/bubble-wrap the new one came in and this one looks WAYYYY better. I was looking to black out the chrome that I could on the truck and the black grill has done the job perfectly. It comes as one piece with the grill inserts included as part of the grill assembly. Installation is about 20 minutes. Hope this helps.
:thumbsup
