So it fits, but will it look odd, or will it line up with the hood just the same as with the power dome hood?

There'll be a slightly larger gap between the grille and hood because your hood sorta 'bulges' up above the grille where as edge/4x4 are flat. Your light color truck will make the gap more visible.


Dangerranger01's old look.....




comparison.....my truck and his...

There's a such thing as Krylon Fusion Primer??? *sarcasm*





I like to use a little clear primer/adhesion promoter, but with Krylon Fusion products, they're made to stick to clean plastic parts without priming. Several folks follow the productions intended use and have great results.

Hell, i didnt know if there was a fusion primer. I dont go around painting plastic all the time lol.

Is sanding neccessary? Whats good to clean the grill that wont melt it lol maybe rubbing alcohol?
