Re: HOW TO: 2014 Grill ring removal

I sent "scotts paint(ur50slo@aol.com)" both an email and PM about getting my rings done, but still no response in over two weeks. Maybe he is busy, or just not doing this kind of work anymore...?

Any input is appreciated.

Mike

I don't know for 100% fact but based on what I have seen I would say no.

After trying to tackle it myself, I will concur but make it a definite no. Full facia removal to change honeycomb.

Well you didn't try hard enough, but I don't blame you. There are tons of users here who have done it from opening the hood and doing it from the "top-down" method. Also cutting out the old grill makes it easier. Which is also what I did.

Just an FYI, you DO NOT have to remove the front fascia. But after trying from the top, you still may want to anyway.

ie: 2014 Grand Cherokee Chrome Grille available?

Unfortunately the sun doesn't help take a picture. Neither does flash. Looks just like rest of truck now and I like it much better than the plasti dip black plus gloss stuff that was on before. Definately gloss black and after not even 24 hours i put back on truck and it was dry enough to put on and pound on. 3 coats easy out of one bottle and it was $3 can.

Did you not have to sand or remove the chrome at all before spraying?

No sanding required. Stuff is made for that type of surface. I removed rings easily using technique I mentioned previously. I pulled them out. Took plasti dip off. Put about 3 coats on. Waited 20 hours or so. Stuck em back on. Looks real nice indeed. My backup plan was to go back to dipping them or have it professionally done... time will tell, just did this yesterday

Awesome. I think I will be giving it a try this weekend and do the same process. I'm bored and tired of redoing the dip.

Thanks for the info and it looks great on your Jeep!
