Painting two tone grille 2012

I am wondering if anyone has seen or done this? i want to paint my inserts but i feel that chrome spray paint will look terrible. Dipping it in chrome involves thousands of dollars and me shipping it to Florida from South Carolina.

personally would paint the grille and leave the inserts chrome

Have you actually been quoted thousands of dollars for plating from an actual plating shop? Try ebay, lots of different grille components on there.

yes i talked to someone at some charlotte shop and they said in tallahassee there is a place that will do it but "anything bigger than my palm will be atleast $300. i am finding stuff close to what i want but cant find it exactly. im hoping for help on here!

So you want a grill like the one in the pic you posted? I'm a little confused Can you just order an OEM chrome package grill? I know those are much cheaper than thousands of dollars

Edit:

There's a link to that type of grille on eBay:

Again, sorry if this is not what you were asking about

I am just looking for the back mesh of my grill to be shiny chrome. ive tried duralast "chrome" and the two places i got intouch with said it would be 2000 to 2500 for them to do it.

i cant seem to find just the mesh tho
