    Just the usual BHLM with no reflectors and scuffed, primed and satin blacked the chrome surround and emblem with some flat clear. Was going to do the whole grill but I liked the graphite center with the silver. Just need an Xrunner lower black center lip now :)

    Here's mine. I actually can't stand the grill surround being Red. It's a little too much, so I opted with Black.

    Just tape it off real good, used scotch brite pad and comet to scuff it up, primered with self etching, wet sanded, sprayed Krylon Fusion since it adheres to the plastic better, then just cleared with flat. Only cost me about $20 and 2 hours to do. :)

    Thanks, Tri and everyone else for the comments. Hey did you get the pictures I sent to your email? I need to resend it again through photobucket. I just opened my flickr account and didn't realize that you could only buy the prints (or am I wrong?).

    I'd love to see this on a silver streak mica with paint matched bumper.

    Been thinking about doing this to my truck for a while. Getting tired of the chrome SR5 surround.
