I'm not a big fan of chrome, thus figured I would try plasti-dipping the grill to see if blacking it out helps.

Pulling the grill is easy


Two bolts and two plastic rivets


Then a few clips behind the grill


The center wings unbolt, thus you can easily paint them separately


Using spraypaint plastidip


After drying reassemble, peal and your good to go


Stock


Plasti-dipped




I can't say it's hitting home for me yet, too much black, stock plastic is not actually black it's more gunmetalish with plastidip it became black. Also I think it would look better if surrounding was body colored and not chrome or black. I might peal everything but the inside wings.
