Bought a Cobra Jet Grille for the 12 Boss (paint color?)

I found a guy that had some brand new Cobra Jet grilles for the 12 Boss, so I bought one. I am going to have the white trim ring painted either black or CO - but am leaning to black. Will leave the grille as is. Anyone seen one of these with the trim ring painted black? I see pic's with it left the white, but can't find any with black or body color.
I used plasti-dip in black on mine. I also opened up the grille more. Make it as open as possible.

Nice find!! Any more available?? Great option for cooling.

Some of our "Second Generation" track rats could use this.

Yes, his ebay ad says he has 3 left. His list is 429 and it just had a 10% sale so I got it for 386 (shiping included out of NY took about a week). If it was his last one I would have paid his full price. If ok to drop the link in here (I have no connection to him).
It's painting day for my new grille. Going for a gloss black and a clear coat over it.

Sticker on the bottom of the grille, looks like Big John did the mod. He did a pretty good job, I had to clean it up a bit as suggested. I found the old grille thread and re-read it all, I guess I should have looked before posting this.
