Paint the Grill Mesh Inserts

I bought a 13 Trailhawk WK2 last week. It is silver. I want to make the mesh inserts in the grill red to match the tow hooks and red stripe on my hood. What would be the best way to do that? I haven't plastidipped before but I could try.

Re: Paint the Grill Mesh Inserts

Throwing caution to the wind. I bought me some red plasti-dip at Lowe's and went for it. I'm very happy with the results.

The outer grill part came off real easy. I took it to the car wash and washed off the bigger clumps of dirt. Then took it home and cleaned it fine with some rubbing alcohol. I watched some plasti-dip videos on YouTube and went for it. I put about 3 coats and it came our perfect.

Masking, put some paper behind the grille so I would keep my rad clean.

Re: Paint the Grill Mesh Inserts

To each their own. I was thinking of doing more red, like the emblems. I get a little fatigued of everyone doing the blacks and the grays.

Re: Paint the Grill Mesh Inserts

There is a HUGE difference between accenting something with black/gray and accenting with red/orange/yellow. That goes for more than just cars.
