Recommendations on a new Grille color and backlight

I have made it to the grille on my ‘todo’ list of my little project. Call me crazy but I would like to stay with the stock ‘electric razor lookin’ grille; but it does need refinished. From all my research most repaint in Satin Black with a matte clear coat.

My Merc is brilliant silver and I am half tempted to try a chrome finish and possibly leaving the inside of the Merc insert Satin Black and keeping the chrome star. I am also working on a dull backlight for the emblem.

Anyone have any thoughts or has anyone used the stock grill with a chrome finish? Please weigh in.

I'd prefer black. As avel du says, kinda lost on a silver car.

Hey thanks good fine, this made my mind up. Going with the original look alike. Charcoal with a matte clear. I will post some pics when complete.
