    I went 1 step further and took the whole grill out/ left the chrome trim around the grille

    Is this Plastidip? How many coats and did you leave it matte or put one coat of gloss? Can't quite tell on the amount of sheen on the mesh in the pics, if any. Looks great tho! Contemplating doin mine like this or keeping all chrome...I just think it would go with the black rims much nicer.

    It's Plastidip yes. I go for at least 4 coats. Anything less on these cross-hatch palstic grills and taking it off will be a huge pain. The bast way is with a pressure washer. It'll turn a 4hour job by hand into a 30minuite opreation.

    There's 0 gloss. The 'sheen' is simply the florescent lighting relfecting off it. If you look at the lower part of the grille, that's how it really looks.

    thank you for the kind words!
