They were not painted, they were bare galvanized metal, which looked silver in color. I like to use the high-temp silver for those and mufflers, as that looks pretty close and holds up good. On Cub Cadets, I have been able to wire wheel the grill screen, back to the bare galvanized metal, but I think that the screen on the 154 is too thin to use a wire wheel on. Maybe sand blast? but you will likely still need to paint it to keep the rust off of it.

I used the alumimum silver paint on my '71 mesh grille.
I'm technically misunderstood at times i guess its been this way my whole life so why should it change now.
