Re: Bought a grille to color match

What was involved with the prep on your grille you had color matched? This looks great by the way! I would love to have all my chrome pieces color matched.

Re: Bought a grille to color match

so the chrome part of the overland grill will "pop out" without having to take the bumper off? Can someone confirm this please? Very interested in painting mine asap.

Thanks

My GC is black.

Any suggestions or tips?

So far the top ones I've found online from people that have painted chrome plastic before are:
-Rough it up with sandpaper.
-Spray some primer on it so the paint takes
... or else it'll chip like crazy.

Should I go for standard spray paint, plasti-dip, or like a DIY bedliner coating?
sorry to bring back an old thread, tired to PM you but don't have enough posts yet. Anyway, your results came out great! Can you tell me where you purchased your grill?
thanks

Re: Bought a grille to color match

I don't love the chrome grill on the Overland but I also don't fully love the body color painted grills. The SRT8 grill seems awesome to me. How could I go about getting that? Do you order it from the dealership or is there a place online to order it? Does it just swap out with the chrome grill?

BTW - my Overland will be in brilliant black

Re: Bought a grille to color match

That is awesome, great job. A black grille would look killer on a stone white vehicle too. Like mine! I want~
