HELP with grill paint from chrome to black!!
 
I live in Atlanta and just bought a new jgc Laredo 2012. Right now the grill is chrome and I have been looking and trying to find a place that will dechrome the grill and paint it brilliant black to match the color my car is now...I've had no luck after calling three auto collision and paint centers. They say that it won't work or they can't do it. Where is a place I can get it done?! I can't do it by myself but want it done so badly!

Send to Scott at Scotts Paint and Performance - he did mine and it turned out incredible. He is a vendor on the forum.

I think it was $50 or $80 for the grill, add about $20 for shipping each way.

I had him also do my rear brow and it turned out perfect.

I would use plasti dip first to see if you like it..
And f you don't like it it just peels right off! No harm no foul!

take it to a powdercoater, it will hold up allot better than pain, they probably wont be able to match the color as well tho
