I joined the club...

I couldnt take the chrome buck teeth anymore... so, i sorta cheated. Went out and bought the buck teeth replacements from the BMW dealer (all of $25.00) but decided to paint the kidney's myself with black gloss paint with clearcoat.

This was a very easy job. VERY satisfying too. I separated the chrome around the grills and went to town with my Dremmel Multimax sanding off as much chrome as I could with 220 grit.

After 5 coats of paint and 3 coats of clear coat, i am confident it wont chip.

Thanks to all the forum members for all the pictures. It is VERY worthwhile.

Here it is albeit on a dirty car..
