$8 for one can. And I like it. Easy for touch up if need be. Just have to prep really good.

Just clean the grill really good. If I was to do it again I would scuff the grill with a scotch bright pad first then clean it then mask everything off really good.

I know i sound like an idiot but what do you mean by mask it off. Did you take your grille completely out, if so how hard was that?
