    Front Grill

    I am wanting to colour code the front v Grill and also the strip on the boot which are chrome.

    How easy are they to spray? do you have to sand the chrome off?

    Obviously i'm worried i'll make a mess and be left with a shagged grill and boot piece!!

    Chrome can be removed with Scotchbrite, you only really need the score the chrome to give a key for the primer. Anyone with any spraying skills should be able to do this successfully with a bit of care and patience, no spraying skills then a good piece to learn on. Do the grill first to gain confidence (£20 to renew if it doesn't work out) then progress to the boot trim.

    I have colour coded the front grill, star silver 3, but have left the rear panel chrome. I think it breaks up the back end. Satin black is a common colour for front grill.
