Chrome grille and bumper options...

I have an 06 and want to get rid of the chrome and go black and red only. I have looked and have not found any close to stock looking grilles aftermarket. I would love to have my grille in black. Maybe even a black and red Ford emblem

I have seen on youtube a redneck sanding down his chrome bumpers and painting them.... Does this work to get the chrome off enough to paint it? If this will work I would like to start with my side steps. Thanks for the help.

You can get your bumpers powdercoated. Thats what i did. The only labor that i had to do was remove both bumpers and take them to the powdercoater. Costs about the same as painting, (maybe cheaper) except a lot less work involved. Holds up better than paint.
