Well, I want to dechrome my 62, I seem to remember the non usa grill being black but can't remember if there are any other differences.

Can you even get these grills? Can I sand down my current grill and hit it with plastic primer and then black trim paint?

I know it is strictly and aesthetics question, but I already have the mechanical down.

Hand sanding (fine grit) and rattle canning it is the preferred method, but you should probably try oven cleaner on it first. Yes, oven cleaner. It will help dechrome.

My chrome was peeling off, so I helped it along with needle nose pliers and then snaded what was well-attached. But if you do the same, watch out, that chrome is actually metal and razor sharp, when it peels off.

Once painted, put as many coats on there as you can muster enough patience for. Rustoleum has a relatively new formula that is made especially for plastics; it has a self-etching primer in it. RustOleum.com
