I had the same worries. So I bought a spare OEM grill off of ebay for $40. It was brand new and still wrapped in plastic. Then had my original OEM painted now i have a spare just in case. But it has been 5 months and no problems.

I painted mine about 4 months ago and have not had 1 problem. I used a silver metallic paint and did not like it so I went back over it with just a silver. Got the paint from Auto Zone. I also painted the accents in the doors, and the center concole. I left the trim around the radio below it and above it alone. I am going to redo the interior pieces with some titainum paint so it will look more factory.

Word of advise make sure the temp is above 60 degrees and paint lots of LIGHT coats, if it runs you are screwed and have to let it dry and sand it down. Its a very easy thing to do.

did you put any sort of sealer on top of the paint?
