just take a chrome grill and very very lightly spray it with taillight tint. if you can get a lighter color tail tint, lighter than nightshades, you will likely get a more "shiny" result. too much tint and it will really dull the chrome effect and you might as well just paint it solid blaCK.
This is what I am gonna do to my stock grill so i can have a "black chrome" for the winter. no, this is not the secret recipe for my custom summer grill.
I also don't reccomend nite shades because it has a slightly purplish hue.

|aireeca||Very cool. I might keep an eye out for one of these over the next few months. Doubt I'll get as good a price as you did, though....|

|soccerrplyr||Mine is fine. It came with nearly no scratches or anything and already messed. Neadless to say i was impressed about the quality trade and overall cost on my part. I found the item by buying a black pearl license plate cover off of ebay and asked the seller if he had anything to get rid of in black pearl. I also got a set of wooden door pulls off of him for 20|

the 94-98 ng900 grills are the hard grills to mesh, because the two parts of the grill are basically plastic welded together. the 9-3 grills you can seperate by unclippng some tabs, as long as you dont break them.
I think it took abdukted a while to come up with his "seceret" recipe. but I am sure you could figure it out eventually

|aireeca||They are pretty stealthy. How has yours held up, Soccer?|

|soccerrplyr||I bought my black pearl grill for a trade of my old chrome grill and 20 dollars. I have seen a lot on ebay resently going for rediculous prices for some reason|

|aireeca||Hmmm....I feel like I need to bid since the listing says it's the only one left ever (or something like that...)|

|rcmdesign||That guy tried selling that grill before. Unless I just saw it before. The reserve is probably insane.|

You could make your own black pearl grille without too much trouble. It all comes down to getting the paint recipe just right. abduckted did and his grille looks great.
I wonder what sort of warranty goes with the oem pearl grille?

|griffen nut||has anyone ever made their own mesh grill from this website? i was wodering what the difficulty level was. http://www.lehigh.edu/~cak7/Appearance/MeshGrill.html|

|JK||I hear those are not very durable, however they do look pretty sweet! I wonder if a person could use nightshade or a similar semi-clear darkening spray paint to achieve a similar effect on a regular grill, might be worth a try!|
