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. ;)

I too am interested in how you did this. My truck has a blacked out grill but it's showing some road hazard chips and nicks. It could use a touch up, if not a complete re-do.

Sooooo, the first coat of Krylon Fusion looked awesome. But after 24 hours of curing, it did not stick to the chrome plastic. :mad: 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.

Green

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

Here is the finished product. I let it cure for a little more than 24 hours before putting it back onto the truck.

Think I am going to be leaving it de-badged for now but all the badges are done with the red 3M double sided tape if I decide to change my mind. :rolleyes:

I know this write up is not the best, but if you have questions feel free to ask. It really was a simple task.
