    FWIW...I painted all my chrome with Plasti-Dip and it's held up through many washes, rains, winters/summer....with very rare occasion to touch up small nicks and Plasti-Dip is very easy to touch up as the spray comes out satin and won't show orange peel effects. It's great to use if you're thinking of painting or replacing but want to see what it looks like in black (or whatever color) before you pull the trigger.

    Well I got the grille on and it actually doesn’t look bad. Color difference is noticeable up close but not terrible so I’m good with it.

    Next up will be mirror caps, door handles and gonna figure out what I want to do with the bumpers.

    Be careful of the black 5.7 emblems on eBay. They are not the right shape for our fenders and they pop off the double sided tape after a few days. After weeks of back and forth, I wound up just plasti dipping the OEM badges. Also, I left a similar review like the one above on eBay and they removed it so don’t trust the reviews.
