Really how did you do yours because I think after two car washes the left side of my grill started to fade... And does anybody seen the thread for the mesh insert?

I think I might go ahead and buy some again and try one last time instead of two coats maybe 4 is the way to go lol

yea i put quite a bit of coats on it... not sure how many but definately more than two. just make sure you clean the grill off really good so it has a nice clean surface to adhere to.

buy a gloss black srt grille and be done with it. it will get rid of those slats, it really spruces up the front end.

2 coats of PD on your grille isn't enough. I use a whole can on my grille. More durable and easier to peal later.
