I did the same thing only I did clear only over plastidip and wetsanded and polished it after. It didn't come out bad for never having done it before, aslong as you doint get right up on it you cant tell it isn't automotive painted. My grille probably would have been a deeper black if I'd done like Snyper did. But it works and was pretty easy. ... I don't like the stock ses dark grille because its kinda of warm charcoal metallic- but it all depends on what youre going for. The stock dark grill looks good with the stock dark (not black) headlights.
