Rattle can results!
I decided to paint my chrome grill since here was no other chrome left on the truck. I would have done a how-to but i am not sure i proceeded in the "correct" manner. However, these are the steps I took...

-wet sanded the chrome with 320 grit
-primed with self etching primer
-wet sanded with 400 grit
-2 wet coats of color, 10 min apart
-2 wet coats of clear, 10 min apart
(started the clear 10 min after last color coat)

Grille was back on the truck within 2.5 hours of starting the project. I should have waited several more hours for it to dry before handling it, but i am impatient.

Anyway,...... What do you guys think???

I'm really impressed! Looks really good and I think it looks better like that than with the chrome on the color matched front.
