A customers painted everything but the middle part of the grill and it came out killer. I'm going to paint the outer part but have a few ideas on the middle part.

Is there a way to prep the chrome grille for a paint job that will last?

Re: Look What I Did

scuff, epoxy primer, paint, works really well.

I have actually seen good results with scuffing, bulldog adheisive promoter, and paint right over the top (not the best option but the truck still looks very good 2 years later)
