mbullock (our resident paint guru) has a "How To" thread on painting chrome.

I used the white plasti-dip. it came out ok, considering. There are some light spots, so eventually ill redo it, but just glancing at it/passing by, it works for me. not to mention, you can peel it off at anytime

Besides tires/wheels, PTMing that grille surround is one of the most cost effective mods, IMO. Why Ford thought it should be chrome, is beyond me.
