Question Painted GT500 Grille?

So I'm more than likely going to be getting the Cervini GT500 Upper and Lower grilles and putting them on in the spring. I have tried to look everywhere, but I have yet to see anyone who actually painted any style of the GT500 grille (Cervini, CDC, or stock).

If I did it I would do it 1 of 3 ways:
I have gone back and forth in my head about it, and I still have time, but I wanted to see if anyone had some other inputs.

Also, if I were to go ahead and paint it, I would go with my car's body color, Performance White.

Thoughts?

Lol, well I mean it really tells me 1 of 2 things, either no one has done it, which I would find surprising or it looks bad. However, I don't know if it could look as bad as half the things in the "Rice or Nice" thread.

Anyone have photoshop?

I can't remember where I saw one painted, it was red and looked horrible. If your set on doing it maybe try plasti dip and see how you feel about it before you commit to it.

Oh I'm by no means set on doing it, I've just never seen it and wondered what it looked like and I've searched everywhere I can think of to try and find a picture. Just trying to think outside the box on personalization before I install it later on.

I would be the last person to pass judgment on someone's mods, & I also operate outside the box.
I do things I like, if others don't like what I've done to MY car, that's ok too.
.
I thought the hood heat extractor looked like crap, bought another one & had it painted.
.

.
I think if you look at the interiors of most Mustangs, you'll find a little round ball shift knob of some size & color.................Not my car !

.
The only time someone else's opinion matters to me is when the car is being judged @ a show................& at least 1 judge didn't like my shift handle !!

Never anyone paint the heat extractor, I kind of like it!

That shift handle is pretty epic, never seen anything like it either.

At least it's not a giant dildo like those import dudes put in their car.
