What kind of paint did you use? Krylon fusion/something else? Looks great! Isn't it easy enough to just remove the grill and paint it? Saves your truck from ANY over spray ( done that a lot on previous vehicles, so i know better).

Looks very good. Paint everything behind the grille black and it'll look way better. imo.

Getting off the grille is simply. What you need to do is take off your headlights. If you don't know how to take those off, there is a how to on it in the how to section. After the headlights are off, what I used is a knife and there are I think 4 clips that is keeping the grille on the truck. Use the knife or whatever suits you and simply put in through the clip and lift up. While lifting up slowly not too fast, pull out the grille. Do that for all four clips. Once done, it comes right off. If I have time, I will take some pictures of the clips and all. Trying to get new camera ^_^. If you need anymore info hit me up.

I knew how to take the frill off that wasn't the problem. The problem was it wasn't coming off. I wasted so long trying to take it off. The clips were so stuck in there they wouldn't come out

You better have enough time and patience to do it. You don't wanna brake the grille when forcing it to come off, scratch the paint or else.
