update

i'm in the middle of painting my grill right now. i used 280 grit on chrome, going to do 4 layers of primer, 400 grit on that, then like 6-8 of flat black, with no clear coat.
i hope thats right? if not let me know before i mess something up too bad lol

i still cant get two of the left leds to work properly. theres four there all together, and two work all the time, but the other two turn on only when they want to. any ideas where the loose connection might be?

BradWhite nite-shaded his chrome mirror caps (he has the se chrome) to make it look like the blacked chrome 09 coupe grill. i like chrome, but i dont think it has its place on a focus.
