black front grill

has anyone taken their grill off to paint it? I see on youtube it looks easy. My next question is can you drive without the grill for 24 or 48 hours while it dries.

Any pointers will be great. I would hate to mess this up.

You definitely don't need that long to dry like 2-3 hours or overnight is fine bed liner is recommended really protects and kills against Rocks

i bought the Rust O leum Black Bed liner. It says 72 hours dry time on the can. I was thinking I should follow that. Did you use the same spray? what steps did you take?

I haven't done it yet but that seems a bit long I have painted many a things on my jeep with the rustoleum paint but it only takes an hour to dry completely with like 5 coats and it says to wait 36 hours on that but ya take the grill off lay it down on some cardboard and spray away first coat do very light and just add on from there around thir coat or so you should be pretty covered

Sounds easy enough. My plan was to do exactly what you said. Dry time was what had me concerned. How long between coats do you think is sufficient?

Agreed an the protection is better you can't peel off bed liner plasti dip works but you can still peel it off bed liner will stay still

I'll be ordering my 13 soon and was debating on using rustoleum on the grill as well. I would really like to know how your grill turns out.

From a member named dukedallas, if anyone wants to see the finished product. Looks great, IMO.

That AEV hood would look amazing with the center "hump?" bedlined.

I am considering that for my silver

Thanks for posting. That seems to compliment the fenders just right.

Rattle can of spray on bedliner from Crappy Tire. About 2 hours to pull the grill/prep/spray and another couple of hours to dry before re-install.

Easy to do mod and looks great (imho )

That looks awesome.

In a year or so when I do my AEV hood + half doors + wild boar front grill order I am going to get the grill and center of AEV hood bedlined.
