Default South Texas- My Chrome for your Color matched WHITE

As title says I didnt think anyone would want this but seems there is alot more people that do than i thought there would be. So if your in South Texas Anyone want to trade MY chrome bumper/grille for YOUR white express/sport?

Figure its worth a shot..

Thanks Ace for keeping me in mind though. Hey, you could always make it your own like I did my chrome grill. A little time, patience, and some Bright White Krylon Fusion and a couple coats of clear coat!

Well Ace if you decide to take the plunge and DIY, here's some tips. I used 1" or 2" Frogtape/Painters tape($5) for masking areas you don't want sanded or painted. I went to Autozone and grabbed me some 400 to 2000 grit sandpaper($10). 3 cans of Krylon Fusion Gloss Bright White and 2 cans of Krylon Clear Gloss(not the U/V because it has a little yellow tint to it trust me)($20). I used Meguiars fine scratch polishing compound after 2000 grit wet sanding the 7 day dried finished product and then finished with Meguiars Polishing Wax to seal the deal. The black ABS plate behind the shield didn't require as much sanding as the chrome. The big key to get the Fusion to bond to the chrome plated ABS grille is to start with the 400grit and then to 600 grit to get a good smooth roughened finish; almost looking like brushed aluminim look. Then wipe down with 80+% rubbing alcohol, let dry, and if anal like me, use a tack cloth to remove any lint or debris prior to painting. 2 to 3 light base coats to start the covering process with 1-2 minutes between each and then a good thorough final base coat to cover area completely to avoid paint dripping. Same goes for clearcoat application as well. The clearcoat can be applied within 4 hours of finishing your basecoat with using Krylon Fusion. Let it all sit untouched for at least 48 to 72 hours minimum before considering to 2000 grit wet sand. Patience is key brother.........
