the color of my escalade(2203) is diamond white and i was thinking of getting the grill painted to match the car. i was wondering if anyone has done this any if it looks good. i've seen it on a black one and it looks pretty nice.
Hello, I had the grill of my Escalade painted white about a year ago and it looks great. I think it looks better than those chessy aluminum jobs. I had to have it redone once due to chipping but its well worth it.
a friend of mine with a diamond white ext had this done to his and i must say it looks different from the stock silver/grey paint on the grille and it kind of stands out amongst the various grille inserts you can purchase. i say you give it a go.
I agree with T-Dogg. When its black you can't tell if its painted or just black plastic. With a lighter color, like white, you can definetly tell it was painted and the monochromatic effect looks a lot better.
i think if you're going to keep the stock style grill, the best would be either the stock gray, or chrome. the whole point of the grill is to be a slightly different color. however, the white doesn't look bad, but it could be mistaken for white plastic. i don't know. it's personal preference.
I kind of agree. I wouldn't paint my black Escalade's grill white, however if I had a white one I would probably color match the grill. I've seen a few black ones with black grills, and it looks nice but I think it looks a little too different for that semi-stock looking I want. I would love to have the chrome grill from the new ESV Platnium though! The big chrome grills are cool too, but I like the stock style more for now. If I had a white Escalade I'd probably get the bigass chrome grill instead.
I've even seen a black Escalade on eBay with the "Rolls Royce style" grill but it was painted black. Kind of defeats the idea of shiney chrome, but it looked different and I'm sure if I saw it in a parking lot or on the road I'd be drooling.
which style is the 'rolls royce style'?? i'll probably go with either the mesh grill or the platinum grill. that way i get some change, but not overwhelming. i like to make sutle changes to the cars/trucks i modify so they look good, but aren't really overwhelming.
