blacked out grille

im interested in blacking out my (now) chrome grille for my silver '10 maxima looking at plasti-dip or just going for the powder coat. looking for more of a flat (or matte) black, point me out to some after market ones even open to any tips, tricks and or suggestions.

Thanks.

I took out the grille and plasti dipped it..13$ cost and not even 20 minutes...I had it for 6 months and its still holding...it will look matt black...but if you want it to look metallic..add some plastidip glossifier
