    Default painting front chrome grill?

    hi i want to spray paint my chrome grill to match the colour of my car, ive only sprayed panels and little repairs before, do you need special primer or coating on the chrome before you paint? has anyone done this and can help?

    I am not a pro on this subject but I would give it a really good key with Wet and Dry paper and then maybe use a plastic primer or a acid etch primer and then the rest is straight forward.
    When rubbing it down try to loose the shine and make the grille a mat chrome

    Yes you can buy the V-grille already primed and I have seen them on the vauxhall accerssories site and you get a discount with being a Vec-C member.
    Look under the Trader colum on here
