Black grill rings...

I must say.... The pics of the black rings vs the chrome online look good but in person they look awesome... Just ordered all the black badges.... Wow they aren't cheap... Thanks to all who have done this mod and gave me a push..

Re: Black grill rings...

I was thinking about using plasti-dip with glossy black. I know those ring are kind of pricy.

What pieces did you end up ordering? What did your total price come out to be. I was about to do this on friday and my pricing will be close to 800 for all the emblems but in black

I did plasti dip the lower chrome... They wanted $126 a piece... Looks good and isn't as noticeable being lower.... If you dip the rings you're gonna need a lot of coats....

Re: Black grill rings...

The costs add up here in Oz, $90k for the weapon and then add 50% to all parts out of US + Int'l shipping.

I agree with the sentiment but it'd be nice not to fork out +$200 for 7 plastic rings & +$300 for the 2 bumper rings.

Is there a plastic shortage in China we don't know about????

Thanks Chad, I'm always concerned if I paint something like this myself the paint will chip off, especially being so exposed to stones and debris from the road.

I don't know how some guys go to length of plast-dipping their whole rig! That would stress me out so much 😰😰😰
