Removing chrome off stock grill
Is there a way to get that stuff off there? I wanted to paint my stock shell black just to see how it would look. Have aftermarket on the truck now, and can't decide if I like it or not. (OPINIONS ARE WELCOME!!) I tried to scuff it up with a scotchbright pad, but the chrome started to bubble up. So then tried to peel it off. Worked on it for a good hour and only got the bottom bar done. Doing the entire shell that way will take forever. Was just curious if anyone knew of a better way to go about it.
The stocker was just taking up space in my attic, so I figured I'd give it a shot to see how well it looked. I painted the shell on the one that's on the truck now, but like I said, I can't decide if I like it or not. I just love a black truck with the front end painted to match.
