    See build thread.
    probably take the grill off by releasing the 7 clips that hold your grill on.

    sand down the chrome real good then rub down with acetone. rattle can several layers and clear coat it. dont forget to wet sand it with some real fine sand paper. take your time doing it.

    or you can just herculine the chrome grill surround like i did to mine.
