Custom painted my grille>>>pics inside
 
Well guys i just went on leave ( army time off if you didnt know) and i decided to go ahead and paint my grille. I want to go with the sport look so i also ordered a sport front bumper thats on its way, but thats another thread.
SOOO. heres how my day went.. Went down to Shucks/Orileys and picked up some paint supplies. Adhesion promoter, primer, paint and clear.

Enough talk heres the pics.

preping, i had to move the project inside the house because it was too cold, and the paint didnt want to stick and almost started to run, the wife was SUPER HAPPY about this idea lol.

primered up, i used 2 coats of adhesion promoter, and 2 coats of primer, 2 coats of paint, then 3 coats of clear

Nice job, looks great. Thanks for the pics. :D Love home brew projects. :rep: Well, I was going to, but it seems I've given you reps lately and have to spread it around a bit more. lol

hmm, well thats not fair, when a man earns REPS he should be able to recieve them, no matter how awesome he is, and how often he does REP worthy things.

i was actually going to do that, and paint the badge white as well, but i wanted to see how it turned out first before i did it, and now that its done i dont want to mess it up by going back again.
