    I would go to the paint person. There is no clear coat on the grill. What happened with the emblem and the side-screen?

    wow strip that off, dont mean to bash but the side inserts are gooed up and you can see drips or something, and no clear. At least try to clean up the emblem and resand, take your time, you can use rattlecan just take your time with prep and take your time painting light coats and long stroke you can see stripes also and not enough coverage and it looks like you did it on the truck, try to take it off

    Judging from the pic.... you painted it with it on the truck because I see overspray on your hood :/ Bad, bad bad move. These grills are extremely easy to pull off, just 4 little pop... things (technical term I believe) and pull straight up from the lower clips. The logo comes off with two screws or clips (I think).

    As for the overspray on the hood... I hope it's not and just a horrible lighting/photo. If it is... you just brought the resale value down quiet a bit. Sorry but that's just how it is.

    The overspray is not a big deal you can get some reducer and a shop towel and wipe it off, there is no clear coat just try to get it off, you can use laq. thinner too, just take the grill off then clean up the overspray, then give that grill a thinner bath... now

    If you painted the grille without removing it from the truck first... :smack:

    Sand it down and start over or take it to a professional. Normally I would recommend chopping it up into a Satoshi since anyone can do it, but in this case...
