I have painted the mesh. You need to remove it from the grill. Take it to a good body shop and have them acid etch the grill. This gives you a rough surface for the paint to adhere to. Then paint it with a quality black body color paint like Dupont.Ulises said:I'm still debating on doing the samething once I purhase my grille. But I think I want the entire thing blacked out...even that chrome strip up top. The only thing I want as is, is the cadillac emblem...even then I found billet emblem from trenz...so many options...
I'm sure just painting the grill and buying that mesh at AutoZone, could save me a few bucks...iTripleOught said:wouldn't that be identical to the 06 sport grill? they are body colored with mesh background, right? you could save yourself a few steps by buying the grill then having it painted whatever color your heart desired.
Yes a veteran poster who feel out of sight lately. Her handle was Gothicaleigh as I remember. The spacing behind the base CTS grill is not much and it hardly showed. Not worth the effort IMO.Ulises said:I even thought about painting my stock grille black and applying that screen/mesh you see being sold on ebay behind it...that would be different...has anyone done that yet?
