colouring front bumper grill abarth in white

hello had my new 595 for around a month now after pondering whether or not to buy it for a while. Absolutely love it so all is well.

My question is if anyone has coloured/painted the front abarth grill in white. It comes black so you can't see it very well. Ive found some pictures of what I'm on about. Didn't know if anyone on here has done it and if so how you went about doing it and what with.

Thanks in advance.

Re: colouring front bumper grill abarth in white

I see what you mean, what colour is yours, did you just want the words painted?
Looking at it the painted words, they may have been "screen printed" on, trying to mask the 'mesh' would lead, I think, to the spray bleeding beyond the mask in certain areas, perhaps speak to a paint shop before deciding ?
