In my experience and research the best way to black out the grille or emblem is to first scratch it up a bit with a scouring pad. Clean it with Iso alcohol. Then give it a coat to self etching primer. Then give it a couple coats of paint of choice. Satin black in my experience is the best match to a factory black grille!! :tu:

I would use semi gloss, just like the work truck package. Flatter paint can sometimes be weaker than gloss paint.

Whichever you choose, get real automotive paint with a catalyst (hardener). Most rattle can products will not have the same durability and will begin chipping in a year or two.

Most better auto paint stores can put any paint you want in a spray can.

Remember, flat black is porous to a certain extent and will show bug stains and is not UV protected. You can go with satin black Fusion which is easier to keep clean but expect to be touching it up occaisionally. [which is really no big deal]

What brand would you reccomend? I just want to paint the toyota emblem out of the grille. So just scuff it up clean it with alcohol and paint it with automotive semi-gloss black? This is a good thread as I have been curious about how to do this. Thanks for the info!

You will need primer also. Don't try to shoot just the topcoat over the scuffed emblem.

I am not a painter by trade, but for the front end and bumpers I like to use industrial "plastic" paint because it has better scuff / impact resistance. Up here there is a company called Endura that sells it.
