Here it is, costing all of 98 cents for spray paint.

Taped up lights and emblem, applied 7 coats to grill itself, nice and shiny now.

Untaped lights, gave it 3 light coats. Appears pitch black, yet orange light is extremely visible when on.

Note to Joel, this is the grill you sent me, living it's new life in style :)

Take that Nightshade, you unavailable bastard.

Yep, very bright. Only have 3 light coats on them, like I said though, they appear pitch black as you can see.

I used nightshade on my car but i have to say that does look alot better than mine. The blacked out likes make the car look so much better. What type of paint did you use?

98 cent gloss black.

Fast drying, so I was able to apply many coats quickly. After all 7 coats were applied to the grill itself, then the 3 to the lights, it dried for 45 min and was on the car in 5 min.

Fun little project as I ran in and out of the house applying coats and IMing people on the computer :)

I havent seen a nightshade grill up close, but what i like about this gloss black paint is that the lights are extremely shiny black and are very reflective, you can see yourself in each light.

Joel-

The turn signals show up as bright as before, when those lights are on it doesn't even look like they're tinted.
