    Id imagine its the same as the chrome boot strip? If I were you I'd leave it to a body shop though.

    I was gonna get a VXR grill but then you got the problem with mismatching mesh so thought it might be easier to jus spray the standard grill

    The VXR grill dont fit a 5 door if thats what u got, but painting the V should be easier enough, just use the correct primer..

    The chrome comes out easy enough from the black plasic too..

    Just read your signature.. U have a 3 door.. Still just paint it..
