lots and lots of sanding

or just pm b16sir1991 and buy an ST grille from him and it'll be painted when you get it, not chrome. It'll also have gray mesh but you can swap your black mesh into it if you want

I think I saw a post a while back talking about a heat gun....

Supposedly the "stick on" chrome peels off when a higher temp is reached.

^I thik I saw that too. If I am not wrong, you can probably heat it up and peal it off. You'd still want to sand and paint the plastic that is underneath though.

I would recomend doing a good amount of sanding with a fine grit paper, then applying a product such as duplicolor's adhesion promoter, then self etching primer, then you can paint the grill any color you like, I'm assuming you don't want to leave it just with the bare plastic.
