Unless you know how to paint, it may be cheaper to trade.

Was going to trade mine but boxing it up + shipping from Pa to TX was $180 through UPS. I'm going to look for someone closer or just buy one.

I would just sand yours down really well. Bondo it ...sand it again ...prime it and paint it. Itll take a few hours but you can proly get away with doing it for 50bucks tops.

UPS will rip you a new ******* on shipping. Have you tried FedEx?

Before I spent that kind of money on shipping one out , I'd either buy a new one or give a shot at painting mine .

well, guess i the verdict is to paint it. soooo, did Mopar have a special paint code for it, or was it just a generic "flat black"?

just thought of something, i got a new sprayer for X-mas, haven't used it yet. YEEHAWWWW!!! guess i need to do some research on painting items in the garage, and hope to not get anything else coated. the Boss might get a bit p.o.'d if her ride got dusted.

Paint is easy, be sure you prep well. There are some good chrome etching primers that will ensure your paint sticks to the grill for a good long time. go get er done!
