    I am in the process of painting my chrome plated plastic grill on my 08 tacoma. I have removed it and scuffed it up. My question is, do I need to prime the grill or just hit it with the krylon fusion paint? the can says no prep or sanding, just paint. What do you guys think? Primer or no primer and just fusion paint....:confused:

    Primer is not necessary with Fusion. An adhesion promoter couldn't hurt but again, not required.

    i know this is a month old, but what was your end results.

    I just finished my chrome grill, scuffed it good with 400gritt and scotchbrite, washed and dryed, sprayed 3-4 lights coats of krylon fusion matte black, then 2-3 coats of krylon matte clear. let dry over night. I removed all my tape and i could see some minor chipping around the edges. Anyone have this problem? The can says 7days before chip resistant. Do you think my paint is still curing? Didnt adhere properly? The paint job looks phenomenal. Whats the deal......might just end up buying the whole grill if this doesnt hold up.

    I know the fusion paint says no prep or primer but as said in a previous post when painting plastic using an adhesion promoter can never hurt. bummer about the chips. i was going to do the same to my grille but decided to just go to a body shop and have them do it. I didnt feel like risking it.

    yup shoulda did the adhesion promoter, ill put the grill back on and see how long it lasts, but with it being winter and snow and salt everywhere im sure it wont last long, this sucks. ill prob just buy a new black grill now, dont feel like stripping it all back down and repainting

    Hey Black,

    When you bought the grille from the geek, did it come it two pieces or one like the factory. I bought an after market grille here in Dallas and it came in two pieces. It kept coming apart, so I had to return it. I checked out those prices and they are great. So, you like the grille right?

    That grill looks good. I think i need to make an investment, it seems like it's done a lot better than I can do with Krylon Fusion. Fusion will fade, as my toolbox shows, in the Houston sun over time.

    The chipping is because you waited too long to remove the tape.

    When taping off an area to paint, you are supposed to remove the tape as soon as possible while the paint is still soft.
