Remove and take apart. Then lightly sand with 600-800 (wet sand) grit. Make sure to scuff all areas. Primer.. sand.. primer. Light coats. Then paint.. sand...paint. If u want a gloss buy a clear coat. I would buy good paint like duplicolor. I plan on tackling this as soon as I get some good weather.

You don't have to sand down to bare plastic. Just scuff it enough to give primer and paint something to hold on to

My painter lightly sandblasted the chrome pieces, then prepped and painted them. If you're interested I also have a spare XL plastic grill that I'll be putting for sale soon. I know some guys paint those too.

Oven-off oven cleaner pulls the chrome right off. Clean prime paint
