Will write up the how to later on tomorrow for those interested. But here is how it turned out. The badges are off and painted. Just not sure if I want to put em on or not. Kinda like be look of the debadged Radiant Red.
Looks great! I color matched my Tacoma's chrome grill and it looked good, but I got rock chips easily. I think the method i used wasnt a good one. So, yes, Id like to know what method you used for yours. Im wanting to do the same with my Tundra.
Will sit down tonight and do a how to on this. It was a learning experience for me. Maybe I can help some others from making the same mistakes I did at first! Lol. As far as the black out process, BHLM is next, then the M1 bumpers front and back.
Sooooo, the first coat of Krylon Fusion looked awesome. But after 24 hours of curing, it did not stick to the chrome plastic. I stripped all of the badges and the grill trim back to original and started over. This time I sanded everything with 300 grit sandpaper and the big areas I used an orbital sander to scuff every visible area of the chrome. Hard to tell from the pic, but they are really dull looking before primer.
I used bulldog bonding agent then sprayed the primer on top of that. The pic above showers the finished primer job. At this point I had about 30 minutes prep time and spraying was literally just a few seconds. Lol
