    You take the grill completely apart then take the chrome parts to a media blaster and have them lightly blast all of the chrome. Now just prime and sand then add your base cost and your clear coat. Reassemble then install, if done correctly it will last just as long as a factory painted one. Sounds hard but its not.

    If I get permission "from the wife" to spend the cash I may get one of these and do the same in PW7 Bright White. Then I will take my old grill and sell it to make back some of the cash. ;)

    The one on my Ram now used to be chrome, painted it two years ago and still looks great.

    They come in black. Its some kind of primer, just sand and paint. You can also just have it wrapped then installed.

    I want to get one for my Ram, maybe a Xmas present to me later in the year.

    Yep!! that's what I had in mind, i'm adding this pic to show how badly the fiberglass one fits. Not only that but" I had to have it wrapped because its finnish was so bad that nobody would dare paint it , so I had it wrapped and now it's discolored and really doesn't match the truck anymore. Oh! one more thing I also had to add hood locks so it doesn't blow up at high speeds, I don't like the look of them at all. I guess the next thing is you letting me know how to order one, That is a metal hood right? Look at the gap between the hood and the body, it's also lifted up a bit and held down with bungi cords.
