    Is there a way to paint your grille suround yourself? I dont really want to pay a shop to do it, and I want it to match the truck. I have a base reg cab, and the suround is a silver/gray color.

    More than likely it will be cheaper to pay a shop. If you don't have the tools it will take an air compressor, paint gun, paint and prep tools. Unless you are talented in the paint and body area and plan on doing more yourself. I would just take it off and hand it to the shop.

    getting there....
    pretty simple.....................prep is key. clean it up real good with laquer thinner,scuff the entire area you intend to paint,wipe with laquer thinner again, and be sure to use some adhesion promoter before you paint it. then paint it.........light coats til its fully covered...letting it dry between coats.
