F/S Silver color matched grill

I have a color matched grill (was stock chrome) for sale, that came off my 2005 TRD offroad. I'm selling it because I bought a 09 one and like it better with the grey center.

I specifically followed the threads here on TW for instructions. Basic layers are: scuff/sand chrome, adhesive promoter x 3, primer x 3, sand, paint x 3, clear x 3. I used Krylon Fusion and genuine Taco paint from online sellers.
Silver Streak Mica.

After painting the grill, I taped it off and painted the center portion black.

The grill came out pretty good, it looks great on the truck.


Issues I have:

1.) It is rough to the touch. It does not feel as smooth as it can be. I did not finish it off with wax or anything (didn't get around to it yet).

2.) Up close near the small black mesh sides & junction with the grill surround, you can see some inconsistent paint. This is where when i taped it off, there was still some over spray that got underneath. I had to do touch up work with a brush.











Some closeup shots of mesh triangles.





Notice : Top pic is before touch up

Sale details:
It comes with the 2 plastic clips.
It does NOT come with an emblem.
Local sale is preferred, shipping will be paid by buyer.

Shipping quote info:
Box size is 42.5 inches long X 8.5 inches X 15 inches
Wt is 7 lbs

Price
$60.00 plus shipping.

Thanks for looking
