Have you considered just painting your stock grille? Or is that not an option?

Did you try painting it with real paint? lol

Like actually sanding it, using adhesion promoter, few layers of paint, clear, sand and polish?

Or did you just paint that "black chrome" stuff directly onto the stock chrome.
