I herd useing a propane torch on the chrome works better than sanding. I also herd it takes a while to sand down the chrome... but whatever you do we need pics and let me know if you use torch... I wanna do that to mine too.

I think it would look good if you painted the chrome part white.

I accidentally melted a grill with the torch method. I was a little impatient. If you torch it, take your time, don't hold the torch in one spot too long.

White or black would look great for the grill.

if you are going to tint the lights then do SATIN black not flat.
