    So i painted my grille surround today WHITE! to match my truck color, i got the paint from O'Reilys that said it was Super White II which was supposed to match my truck perfectly but i doubt it! Kinda didn't paint the grille right, was a lot of paint running but fuck it, will be posting a couple of pics of the finished product as soon as it dries up!

    Hey if you want to start ALL over just get some Aircraft Remover. It will take off the chrome along with the paint.

    When you use rattle can paint, always use several light misting coats first, let that dry to the touch. You can then start to add it a little heaver, again using several coats to get the finish you want. Take your time. As for masking parts, 3M blue painters masking tape is about as good as it gets, don't skimp on tape.
