Re: Chrome Grill Pealing?
Gnarvan thats an idea I hadnt thought of thought I have mixed feelings about texture on the outside of a vehicle but that would work well.
My girlfreind gives me a hard time for not really liking the trendy flat black (and other flat/mat colors) cars or even all black rims for that matter, I must be getting old.
Jeffery my year is the first year for the big (not as good looking as the 1992-2007 vans in my mind) truck like grill. Starting in 2008 when the vans got a face lift the standard painted bumpers and grill were black not gray and my van has the optional appearance package so chrome bumpers and grill. Since way back in the 60s vans (50s for trucks) have had standard painted bumpers and grills with optional chrome available.
You are correct about it being chrome plated plastic.At any rate there are no billet or custom grills for the 2008-2012 vans yet that I can find so its either buy a new Ford or aftermarket black grill for $300 plus or do something else. I was hoping someone on here would know how to strip chrome or something so I could paint it body colored to have something different as I think its to big looking in black or chrome. I also want to paint the rear license plate housing on the back door body color to change the looks.
I would do what my vinyl guy suggested the carbon fiber look but I am afraid the chrome will just keep pealing under the vinyl.
