Chrome go bye bye!!!

My 07 Rubi came with some factory MOPAR grille inserts. I'm not much of a chrome fan, so I took them out. I had planned on selling them, but then it hit me while reading another post about painting the chrome JEEP letters...I've got some Krylon Fusion Flat Black spray paint, a can of clear coat, and some 320 and 400 grit sand paper. Well I did a test run on one, and it turned out pretty good. I've got 5 completed so far, and the last 2 didn't turn out so well. I think I might have to sand them back down to the chrome and start over. All in all they turned out pretty decent. Krylon Fusion is the greatest invention ever....going to use it on the interior of my 83 Chevy C-10 resto project too!!!!

I'm so glad you mentioned the Krylon Fusion paint, I've got some plastic stuff I want to paint and was trying to remember what the paint was called.
