    OK, so I'm trimming out my speedway blue prerunner in black. I've got black bedcover, nerf bars, bull bar, and dark window tint. I currently have removed the SR5 grill, and want to paint the gray part satin black. I removed the chrome Toyota emblem, but the chrome surround would be impractical to remove, so guess I'll have to tape. Anyway, I suppose I'll have to scuff up the plastic. Will I need a special primer and paint for the plastic? Or should I take it to the body shop and pay up and let the pros do it? Thanks for any advice.

    Dang, Wish I had proofread thread title "How do I paint plastic plastic grill", it's just just that I stutter sometimes.
