[DML] Re: Front grill

There is no need to dye the grill, or any of the black parts of the exterior for that 

I just painted my grill yesterday.  I also repainted most of the exterior black parts a 
few months back.  Just go to any automotive or paint store, and buy a spray can of 
black and a spray can of primer.  Be sure to sand the part completely smooth and 
clean it very well before applying the primer.  It is also a good idea the warm up 
anything that you intend to spray with a heat lamp before application.  This helps the 
primer and paint cure better.  Once the primer is on, let it dry (best with that heat 
lamp) and then sand it smooth with a very fine grit of sand paper to remove any dust 
or other impurities that got caught in the primer.  Wipe it clean again, re-heat it, and 
then apply the paint.  Be careful, otherwise the paint will drip and you will have to do 
it all over again.  When you are done, if you want, you can apply a clear coat if you 
want a glossy look and some added protection.  I, personally, opted for a semi-gloss 
black paint.  I love the look of it.  I used Krylon spray paint that I got at an automotive 
store, and it looks great.

Hope this helps.  It's really not as difficult of a proccess as it sounds.  If you are just 
doing the grill, it should just take a couple hours (And most of that time is waiting for 
it to dry.)  You can just pull the grill off, so there's no need to tape anything off, so 
that will save time too.

If you have any further questions, or need me to go deeper into detail about anything, 
shoot me an e-mail.
