Kind of the look I'm going for.

Just reverse the pics. Haven't started yet.

Epic fail. Peeled plasti dip off and just took the grill to paint shop and they're going to spray it with the Challenger metallic charcoal.

Finally, a real story on that garbage plati dip. Get it done right the first time. Sorry you were convinced on plati dip. That stuff is horrible.

Lol. Live and learn. To properly and evenly cover that much flat hard surface this was not the correct path. Luckily I'm only out 19 bucks and change. I'm sure an experienced sprayer could do a much better job. It just looked super hillbilly.

Here's the professionally painted grill:

It had some dust on it from the shop I wiped what could off with my shirt. This is Challenger charcoal metallic with a satin finish to hopefully blind in with the fenders an bumper.
