    Did you remove the front bumper ends or did you just tape off the surrounding areas?

    They are painted.... the angle they sit with the light hitting them gives the illusion

    I've been looking on youtube about using "dip". Some of the painters say to lightly dust your grill first and spray several coats, others say spray it on "wet" and still do several coats. Thought I would ask people in the know

    I took the grill off and clean it with a micro cloth rag and sprayed about 5 coats on there waited about 20 min between coats
    i also washed the truck 1 hour before is started too made sure everything was dry

    I've done a little..
    When I was going about chrome deletion, I considered dipping or wrapping but with the rock chips and debris the front end is subjected to, I just decided on bed lining everything.

    Im from Conroe too, I have been considering having mine sparyed with bedliner, where did you go and how much did they charge you? Did that include the front grill surround or just the end caps. Wondering if they removed these to spray them or did they tape them off?

    I did mine and started light. This gives a base for additional heavier coates. I believe I put about 8 or more coats. They say more coats make it easier to remove if you decide to later. The problem with going to wet is the risk of runs.
