Colour matched to the wheels and window frames.

Take the grille to bits, clean, plastic prime and paint.

I have plans to do this to my grill, but not yet got the time.

What look are you planning to achieve?

start at the grill - then consider the bonnet.
The bonnet painting is a much bigger decision than just the grill.

I've only painted the chrome suround on mine, didnt bother with the plastic center incase it starts to flake off.

And how has it held up?
