Replacing front Grill/ Paint or no paint

Recommended Posts

I have seen front grills that appear matte black or unpainted. Anyone gone that route? I just ordered the OEM replacement to replace chrome grill and debating about painting. I apologize if this has already been discussed. Appreciate your help.

Put my unpainted grill on the first month at 30K and am now at 70K. I'm very pleased with how it has held up w/OUT being painted. Wash it often and wax it too. I think it looks great w/the EGR bug guard as well. You can always paint it later. Good Luck

how is the plasti-dipped holding up on front grill and trim. Is that grill plasti-dipped or primed (no-paint)? Thanks....

Primed grill, plasti dipped trim (looks as good as when I dipped it months ago).

Mickey.

 

I just removed my front license plate and need to reinstall it, where did you get the bracket you used for the lower install??

 

Edge looks great, I am actually about to do the same thing to my grill...

I bought the OEM grill and installed it 6 months ago. Looks just as nice today.

 

I like the contrast between the matte primer finish on the grill and and the glossy body paint. Sets it off

Candurin, how did you get the trim above the headlights off with that third bolt being under the fender?

I plasti dipped my grill and it looks great. By mistake, I applied Trimshine on it and it's now shiny and sealed! Nice mistake.
