I will be doing my L to RS conversion soon! I will have to get the bumper cover painted, and I was wondering if I should paint the grille to match? My car is Crimson pearl, I think; very similar to SRP. Right now my grille is completely black. Here is a pic of it:

No. If you are doing the full conversion, you're going to have to replace the grill and headlights anyways, so why waste paint on a grill that's not going to be there for long?

Right now I'm just doing the bumper cover; I don't have money for a hood and headlights, etc. right now. I don't know if I will do the headlights and hood and grille; I thought about just getting a hood scoop and mounting it somehow to make it ghetto fabulous! :D

I almost forgot! I'm doing the coupe spoiler, too! :D

Even if you are keeping the stock grill, don't paint it. Just doesn't look right.

Did a quick, nasty Photoshop of it. Don't make fun, it's hard to pick out a black piece on a black background, then make it colored.

Yeah, I see why I shouldn't do it! It doesn't look right at all! :p
