    Painting my S-line grille black??

    I have been researching this for some time and have decided the cheapest and easiest option to blacking out my grille is to paint it. It looks simple enough as the bumper is already off so all i need to do is to rub it down and primer it. My question is, what black paint do people recommend for the grille?? I see a lot of people have used plasti-dip, are there better options??

    Any advice welcomed.
    Cheers,
    James

    I've seen some bad examples of people using plasti-dip. Apparently it can sometimes take a while to dry and you can make it look awful if it hasn't dried properly. I've done my cupra lip in satin black spray paint from Halfords (used their primer first) and then finished it with some clear coat spray I bought of ebay. Looks pretty smart. Just need to stick it on the car.
