Splnkr I just did this. My grille looked like a B-17 returning from a bombing run over Nazi Germany. I used Dupli-color Bed Armor (it has Kevlar!). Did the winch plate, too. I just masked everything off and sprayed (yes it comes in a rattle can--Advanced Auto Parts for $9.99/can) it with several coats. No need to remove grille. Took headlights out also (painted the bezels with Krylon just for fun. Looks great! I'm gonna to the last three or four inches of the hood (also pock marked) and the A-pillars and the windshield surround. All I did was run over the paint with a Scotchbrite pad.

Plasti-Dip Flame Red Grill

Trying to get some pics of flame red tjs with a black grill. i have a ton of chips in my grill paint and wanted to change the look a little bit too. I figured plasti-dip is a good temporary way that i can see if i like it or not while also protecting my jeeep. might do a hood decal too. (like the poison spyder hood decals.)
