Some people (with other cars or trucks) use spray rubber (e.g. Plasti Dip) to "paint" specific car or truck parts (like grilles, bumpers, wheels) black. It is supposed to be easily removable if you decide you want to have the stock appearance back.
I've used Plastidip - both spray and dip versions. The dip-in-it version is much more durable, while the spray stuff comes off easily with a fingernail, and I don't care for the look on a car. I think shiny black matching the car color would be fine.
Yea what is Chevrolet thinking putting a fake silver grille in a black EV. I almost bought a silver Bolt to get the black grille but if I had a silver Bolt I'd want the silver grille. I'd like to know the ratio of folks who prefer a silver grille in their black Bolt vs black. Anyone want to trade? I'll do the research and work and guarantee perfection. I'm in Livermore, CA.
Keep your Bolt charged. You never know when OJ may need another lyft
I asked the dealer body shop about replacing or spraying the "grilles" on my "black" Bolt.
They said that the black replacement grille would not match the car because the car has "sparkle" in the paint (I don't recall the technical term). They also told me that to match the paint by spraying the grilles they would have to spray the whole front of the car, to fade in the change in the sparkle, so it would match that part of the car near it.
First time I've ever had a body shop advise me not to have work done, so it seems credible.
