Grille and side vent respray in anthracite

As im sure many have experienced, my side grilles had a few chips in thr paint and the lacquer on the grille / chrome finish had gone flaley and failed.

So, heres some before, during and after pics of both after some plastic primer, anthracite base coat and then lacquer. It has really freshened the car up!

Thabks. Just rattle cans owing to the small size. Wasnt worth the effort of cleaning my spray guns before and after for such a small job. Ive also painted a spoiler ive bought for it, but again had the paint shop custom mix some LOIRE Blue paint for me. Looks good too
