I know normally chrome can't be painted, but since it is really just plastic does anyone know if the chrome grill can be painted I hate all that chrome on my front end.
Thanks

Or if you get Plastidip spray you can just straight up clean it and spray a few layers on it

(easier and removable)

Ended up looking pretty good with the plastidip. Plus really easy to use. I'll post pictures as soon as I get to my computer.
