The body colored Laredo mirrors do not have the turn signals within them so that will be an issue.

We need to ask that of someone that has one. I haven't knuckle rapped the grille, but did so with the mirrors...those are plated plastic.

Re: Is it feasible to repaint front grille to body color?

it is not fake chrome......plastic can be chromed using a different process from chroming metal. And yes....the chrome can be painted very easily. Just have a shop scuff it up(doesnt have to be removed since the chrome is essentially bonded to the plastic) and paint it. Very easy....

I also don't like the chrome door handles, and would prefer that long chrome bodyside molding on the side to be body colored, too.

I actually don't mind the chrome grill or chrome rear end all that much. Yet I preferred the body-colored grill on the Laredo WK that preceded the WK2.

I think I might get some of the door moldings and paint them flat black but leave the chrome in the lettering and see how that looks
