    Question Painting Ram Air Grills?

    i was wanting the stainless steel ram air grilles but after seeing how much they cost i was wondering if i could just paint the plastic ones? would it still look good?and also would the holes still retain or would paint build up in there? also if i were to do this what would be the best paint to use i was wanting a silver or chrome look...?
