Question painting front grills

Hey Guys just thinking about painting my front grills to match the titanium. I saw the article here in the forum but was wondering if anyone has already done this and if you could give some pointers that would be great

I wanted to do the same, but I spoke to our painter at work and he looked at the grilles on his neighbours car and told me he thinks they are coated not just sprayed.So the obvious concern is the fact that sprayed ones could chip and then peel.
I think I am going to bite the bullet and get the OEM ones from crevier for $55 each grille.
They look awesome with the Toledo blue.
2005 Toledo Blue 3.0 Beige Lthr-sport-prem-clim-autodim mirrors;;
Mods so far; rear fog lights retro-fit,ractive oval tips,titanium grille set,OEM trailer hitch,mud flaps, aux audio input,non-smoker ash tray,sub-installation and a set of the 4.8is 20" replicas with cooper Zeon 4xS.Euro clear headlights & rear parking sensors.LPG Dual fuel convertion.Chrome bezel rings,Fitted uk cycle lighting board electric hook up,Sport wheel centre re-trimmed in Alcantara,
Still luvin the ride :
