Grille opening molding help needed

Getting the grille opening ready and have a few questions

1. What paint color are the Marchal bracket painted or are they a natural

2. What paint color is used for the grille opening molding painted and were all grille moldings painted with Marchal light

3. Has anyone painted their grille molding and have any suggestions on the process

4. Would someone post close up picture of the painted grille molding

Thanks

I use SEM Bumper Coater #39263 dark titanium metallic. The grille and brackets are painted this color. The two mounting tabs at the top are painted semi gloss black. The Marshal pedestals are natural stainless steel. The Lucas pedestals are painted grille color. The grill moldings are painted the same color as the grille, masking off the raised borders, which are left natural aluminum.

Hope this helps. Mike
