Alright I dont know if it is suppose to do this but I sprayed some Crystal Clear Matte Clear Coat on the grille and sprayed out kinda white. Is it suppose to do that? If not I am just going to put another coat of black on top of it and call it a day.

I dont know its still white. I am going to probably just wet sand it and put another coat of black on it. If it does not hold up I will just buy a black grille.

Bedliner....bedliner....

Don't mess with any of that paint crap, I have done it probably 2-3 times on my truck, it chips sooooo easy. Bedliner sticks very very well in my experience. Esp when you sand it well.

didn't even think about that... bed line it dude! Shane's used it many times and always had good luck with it!

Sand it down the the metal again, and adhesion promote the grille, and throw on a coat or two of the bed liner in a can... That would look sweet!

Weird, mine comes out white but dries clear. Try using a lighter coat next time.

Cause I have one side that someone gave me I just dont have the other side.

Just looked at their site and they are 23 bucks each. I should just get some money together and go buy everything I need.
