Sorry but I don't understand your question. You say "backing my chrome grill white". Do you mean painting the grill white? Look at Bathis (I think thats how he spells it) grill. Its all white and I think it looks good.:cool:

X2 Mike, thats an engine block heater, In California you wouldn't one of those lol!
If you do paint it to match make sure you scuff the "chrome" real good, It will flake off if you don't do good prep work. There is an adhesion promoter called Bulldog, they sell it in any paint store and it's made for painting flexible plastics and chrome pieces. It also keeps from getting spider cracks in the clear coat.

Just sand good and use etching primer. It will look much better painted. Paint your bowtie black while you're at it.

Or you could swap with someone that has a black work truck grill and paint that one.
