    Seen a ton of plastidipped grilles but only a handful of painted grilles. Heres how i did mine, and i am horrible at painting, but thought it came out well. Total time was about 4 hours with 6 coats of paint and clear.20160505_165602.jpg20160507_125007.jpg 20160507_144041.jpg20160511_124852.jpg 20160507_144625.jpg

    Be brave and give it a shot. The hardest part was getting the courage to put scuff pad to perfect grille, cause i knew there was no going back. Wasnt too difficult for me though, as i despised the all chrome grille it came with and wanted it gone asap.
