    So 3 weeks ago i decided to spray paint my chrome bar billet grill gloss black. Everything was going perfect until i screwed it up at the very end ( figures ). Today i decided to redo it. I used jasco paint remover and it didnt go good. It was my first time using it so maybe i messed it up. After 5 hours of trying to get one piece cleaned up right, i decided to get help. I called a local sandblasting company and they are now gonna sandblast and powdercoat it for $110. Should have done that from the start. Seems like a deal considering it wont chip like it would if it was spray painted. Post pics tomorrow when I get it.

    I just lightly sanded mine down and re-did it! Plasti dip is the best shit and goes on EASY with no overspray spots.....its matte black though! I've also had great results with krylon fusion too, its made for plastics!
