Recessed looks good! It gives more depth to the grill opening.

That looks really nice! I like the recessed look as well!
In my experience, the plastic you used for the spacers, Delrin, doesn't hold paint very well. If you found a paint that sticks to it, please let me know.

I end up using Krulon Fusion paint after sanding with 320 grit. Great for hard to stick plastics (and I already had it since last project)

Great! I'm always skeptical of the "sticks to plastics" claim. My old go-to was to sand the plastic, brush it with yellow contact cement let dry, then spray paint. It wasn't a really smooth finish, but it stuck! It looks like I need to re-evaluate the Fusion spray paint.

Now they state on the can no peal guarantee.
I happen to have gloss in my garage, so I end up surfing with white scotch pad as soon as the paint was dry to the touch to dull up the finish.
