Really need some help here.

Okay really thinking about plasti dipping my grille cover. Just need to know, either how to take it off, or can I do it while it's on? Or will it get into my motor and end up messing something up! Please help!

Yeah, you'd have to unbolt it, or you'd run the risk of pluggin up your radiator, and that would be bad.

Take it off, it will have a cleaner finish. You'll just have to remove all the bolts holding it and the lights.

It will look better if it is taken off, it should only take 20 minutes at the most to take it off and put it back on. I didn't take mine off the first time and it turned out badly.
