take the grills off...prime it, and put a lot of paint on it..maybe gloss it with clear coat if you want. the other parts...be EXTREMELY careful and use blackout tape...also black out the blue parts on the bmw roundel. good luck

Actually, what you have to do is lightly sand the chrome off first, you dont have to get it all off, just so that there's texture that the paint can stick on, then you can prime if you want, but paint it a flat black, it'll look much cleaner!

Charlie helped me get my chromies out.

Flat black is like the colour of the plastic between the headlights and the kidney. (non shiny)

Are your painted, or did u use the tape?
Can I use the black bumper paint for the chrome?
