I have an '08 escalade in Black Raven. I know Caddy made a "sport" grill that is all black that can replace the stock chrome grill. Just wondering if anyone has tried using black vinyl to wrap the chrome on the grill. I saw a video on YouTube of chrome trim being wrapped and it looks doable. I'm looking for a less expensive alternative to buying and replacing the grill, yet still getting that blacked out look. Any idea what a body shop would charge? Would matte vinyl look ok or would a more glossy vinyl to match the paint look better? I'm considering wrapping the chrome strip on the hood, too.

powdercoating might be a better alternative
and should still be fairly cheap too
and that way you'll get a uniform color across the grille (and you could powedercoat the mesh too)

I did not know that you could powder coat plastic? Interesting... ;)
I replaced my black sport grill with a regular chrome one. I'd sell the sport grill if anyone wants it as its just collectling dust on my garage - might be expensive to ship however.

now that you mention it, i'm not sure you can PC plastic either... but if you could that would be nice
Show some shots of your escalade. It would be much easier to help, I think.
