    We got the paint code and got the paint from a local paint shop. Just take off the grille and use painters tape to tape off the rubber seal and the center part of the grille. Sand it down, clean with alcohol, (we also used this stuff called "BullyDog" its for plastics and helps the paint bond and not chip or crack as easy) And I dont remeber if we used primer but it wouldnt hurt to go ahead and use it. And then paint, then clear coat. :cool:

    You probably have to take the door panel off and look and see how they are on there..
