Nite-Shaded 08' Grille

OK, I can't leave my grille alone - what can I say. So this time I used VHT Nite Shade over the chrome on the grille. The first issue I had was that Nite Shade doesn't like to stick to chrome, not even after some steel wool. I solved that by getting the Nite Shade the way I wanted it and then spraying clear coat over it.

I also Nite Shaded the emblem but I polished off the Nite Shade to expose the chrome rim and the "FORD" lettering.

So here's a couple of pics, what do you think?

looks nice, just one question tho, why niteshade? is there a reason you used it instead of black paint? reason i ask is b/c usually people use it as tint on tails or side markers.

ive been trying to find some niteshade in my area without having to order offline. where did you get yours?

I used the Nite Shade because I wanted it to look like black chrome, which I think it does. The pics don't do it total justice, it looks better in person.

Hmm, did I already post this? I seem to remember a conversation about Ford copying me with the 09' grille.
