That looks great! Willing to do a complete write-up on the process? I really want to do the same to the grill surround on my truck!

i didnt take any pics unfortunately but i took 120 grit dry sandpaper sanded the surround and the actual grill. washed it let it dry nicely then coated it twice, once with primer then once with the color i wanted, allowing it to dry in between. then i took 1500 wet sandpaper went through and made sure all the rough spots were smoothed out. washed, dried. sprayed another 2 times. then i took 2000 wet sandpaper, went through lightly and just sanded the whole grill. then i took clear coat. 1 coat then 2000 sand and wash then 1 more coat and waited for it to dry and put it back on.
