Did you take the grill out and take the shroud off to paint it or did you paint it on the truck and just tape it off? Nice job, it looks great. I need to paint mine too.

I took the grill off the truck but I did not remove the red piece that stretches under the headlights I just taped it off around the grill. I removed the ford logo though. I tried to get the clips off on the back to remove the grill from the rest of the red piece but they were a pain in the ass and I didn't want to break anything. similar to this pic (not my picture)-

Speaking of the flaps I went to take them off the other day, and realized there is plastic grommets holding them on. Im not entirly confortable just leaving holes there where the grommets went in so I stumbled across this pic in another thread and it seems as if there is a pastic piece in place of the mud flaps to hold its place, anyone know what its called?

I haven't seen those anywhere. Tried to find them on the internet but no luck. You might ask the guy that posted the picture where he got them.
