2 I used 600 grain sandpaper to rough up the chrome surface. Took a LOT of sanding.
3 Cleaned it off with mineral spirits.
4 Sprayed it with 3 coats Krylon Fusion satin black. About 1 hour between each coat. Let it dry overnight, then did 2 coats satin clear.
5 The inserts were gutter guard mesh from home depot. I cut squares about 1/2 inch larger that the backside of the holes in the grill opening.
6 Drilled a hole in the lip of the openings on each side. (top, bottom, left, right)
7 Used black zip ties to secure the mesh to the grill. Folded excess mesh over outside of the back of the openings.
8 Made 1 relief cut in 3rd opening from left to give room for hood latch.
