A replacement color matched FX4 grille is $365.82 USD from Tasca Parts. I've read mixed reviews about Line-X bonding to plastic. Some say it can be done if the piece is totally encapsulated in Line-X while others say it simply doesn't stick. There's a Ram 3500 with the chrome package down the street and he has his grille sprayed in Line-X. Looks good but I also like my color matched FX4 grille. Peeling/sanding the chrome off and then getting it repainted will probably cost as much as buying a new FX4 grille from the US.
