I just painted my grille on my lml in my garage and brought it in the house to stay warm.

The key is to scuff the chrome really well use a good auto primer and a few light coats of primer sand each coat smooth a couple coats of auto paint and a light wet sand on color coats and clear a light wet sand and polish it up.

I am going to color match my bumpers in the summer when they can sit in the barn or garage longer than 30 min before it is too cold for them

Thank you. Yessir, smoked Recon tails are on my list. Not sure about the headlights though. I've never seen any aftermarket ones I like. I'll probably end up clearing or painting these.

For $1000, They will take everything off, sandblast, primer, paint and then put everything back on.

hmmm

if they even said half the money is taking off and putting it back on id do it myself,

but if they were like its going to be 800 to paint and 200 to take off and put on and they can guarantee they wont chip it in the process then i would go that route

just depends on how much you want to spend for the same work you could do, or if you dont care then do it !!!FTW!!!

they said $200 cheaper if i bring them the parts. For that price i would rather have them deal with putting it all back together. especially the front bumper
