as long as the grille is not bent or broken, you can restore it easily... here's how:

-clean it thoroughly with a good degreaser, use a toothbrush or scrub brush.
-take some steel wool and clean the edges in the front, the point is to get the looking good so that when you scrape the paint it will look good underneath
-paint the entire grille with semi-gloss black. use an enamel paint, not a lacquer since lacquer will chip easily.
-let it dry to the touch and then use a razorblade to scrape the front horizontal bars. Only scrape up to the edges of the horse and coral. behind the coral should not be scraped.
-once it all scraped, use a lacquer thinner rag to go over the bars once to get any areas the razorblade missed.
