Chrome paint looks more like the "brushed" LS grille color... Not bad, but not chrome.

It would be slightly labor intensive but, you could use a quality vinyl chrome. Long time ago a member did his front bumper and it turned out pretty nice ......from the pictures......but the chrome bumper was not my cup of tea.

I just got the gloss black and mesh version of that same grille (ABS) off eBay and it looks amazing! Planning on installing this weekend and will post pics.
