Brushed Aluminum Grille (kinda) and Some Other Work
 
So decided to do some work to the WK this weekend. I was going to tint the tails, and color match the grille and heads, and debadge it. The tails turned out great so did the debadging. When I was scotch briteing the grille to get it ready to paint, I noticed I couldnt get through the chrome. I sanded for a little while longer when in noticed it started to look like brushed aluminum, so i decided to run with it. It was alittle to shiny so I just sprayed with some extra adhesion promoter to dull it a bit, the cleared it. I then cut the grille inners out and made an expanded metal grille for it. Once done with that I changed my mind and went wth black for the head lights. Heres some pics let me now what you think. :thumbsup:
