    Wanted to post some photos of my painted grill.
    The most difficult part, was removing the front cover grill “FORD” from the actual grill.
    For this, you need to remove the louvers behind the grill.
    Afterwards, you need to “undo” some of the factory melted tabs behind the front grill cover.....
    Besides that, I would say is a straight forward process.

    Very great job.

    I think it fits the darker colors much better, like yours.

    Very nice.. I have to say when I saw the post, I was like.. this isn't going to be good... boy was I wrong... looks great! I agree with the other posts.. probably a good plan with your blue or a darker color.. not sure about Terrain or White.
