I ordered a powder coated grill from customcargrills.com - Custom Car & Truck Grills - Billet & Mesh Grill Inserts

Durable, shiny, but of course you gotta spend more money

I'm talking about painting the frame of the grill not the grill insert. Also what kind of paint do you paint the emblems?

Go to your local AutoZone or equivalent. Get the Duplicolor, or the Rustoleum, whichever they carry. Just pick your color and a clear that is compatible.

Something I did: paint the emblems and grill with plastidip first, then your choice of duplicolor paint ontop. That way if you ever want to take it off, the plastidip allows you to remove it and return to stock
