Hey, I spent all day on this so I thought I would post it. I recently had issued with the wife's Murano and bubbles in the grill paint. Nissan told me I was SOL. New grill is $100+ and paint was $13. Let me know if you like it.
Check out the bubbles
First remove the clips from the air intake and lift it out from this part of the air box.
Next remove two molding pieces to the right and left of the intake. four clips hold each one on. Right side is a mirror image.
Then remove the clips holding the top of the grill on.
There are six clips holding the bottom of the grill on. They suck to get off. You have to snake your arm in behind the grill and pinch them. At the same time you have to gently pull the grill out.
Ok, now it is off. time to take the Nissan emblem off.
To take the emblem off use a Philips screw driver and remove two screws.
Time to sand and remove the chrome plating. Use an exact-o-knife to peel away the plating. Be prepared for this to take several hours. Sorry no pics to frustrated!
Now on with the painting. I stated off with Krylon spray paint made to bond to plastic. Three coats.
Then I finished with three coats of high glossy enamel paint.
Almost done. Then attached the Nissan emblem.
Re-attach the grill and all the parts in reverse order.
Decided to go more glossy the next day. Pulled it out again, bought some dark blue engine enamel and "nite shades" (for blacking out tale lights). A whole can of engine enamel and three coats of Nite Shades later I had this. I'm pretty happy.
Let me know what you think. Do at your own risk!
