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. [8]

Thanks guys, appreciate the comments. I haven't seen an 09' yet, guess I'm going to have to go over to my local dealer and check them out.

FullMetal_Focus, I've been looking for some wheels I like and your 09' looks great with the Enkei's on it. I guess I'll have to look at those again.

Thanks again!! The six piece 3D Carbon body kit will be painted next week and installed next weekend (or that weekend after; at the work party). I'm excited to see how that comes out.

looks amazing, If I wasn't going to reinstall the chrome rims from my 01(which I see many focusfanatics hate[chrome in general i mean]) I would do it to my grille but I need other chrome accents!
