    Painted my Grill and front bumper and side decals today. I like it a lot. I think it looks cool at night. It was pretty easy just taped it off and rattle canned it. Will see how long it lasts.:)

    looks good dude...good luck with that rattle can on the chrome. i did something like that on an 02 and even after serious scuffing of the chrome and adhesion promoter the spray didn't last a long time :rolleyes:

    but it is just rattle can and a touch up should only take a minute :D

    ^^^ I thought about it but want it to be dull flat black. Plus it will be easy to touch up. The chrome was chipped and scratched so just wanted something different. I want to build a plate bumper soon.

    I used a putty knife with a sharp edge to get them off. A razor blade and paint thinner to get the gooo off. And some 3M doublesided tape to go back on.

    Paint will peel off the chrome sorry! Maybe if the chrome parts were sand blasted there would be some adhesion.
