    Anyone have this done? Any issues with excessive stone chips? I'm getting PRO grill with Bulge/surround in silver sky and I think the center would look sweet if painted too. Anyone have pics?

    I see what you're saying... it would like more like a Taco. It has never crossed my mind. I was actually considering blacking out the entire front bumper but now you have me curious...

    Are you talking about the lower, larger center piece or the upper thinner piece that wraps the center?

    I had it done before and I didn't keep it on for very long because I couldn't get used to the look (too much silver) and the color match was off just enough to bug me. If I did it over again I would have the center painted gloss black.
