Sounds good to me just make sure you do a good job at prepping it. As in sanding and cleaning the grill.

It took me about 2 hours to do mine. I kinda rushed it though. Took it off, lightly sanded it down, hosed it off, let it dry, taped off the FORD embellem, primered one coat of flat black, lightly sanded after it was dry, wiped it off with a damp cloth, painted it with some flat black bumper paint, let it dry, and reinstalled. It was pretty easy but I'm going to redo it. I need to sand it a little better and do more coats. But it looks AWESOME!
