I've just removed the grille and fog light covers off my 2014 XT and am looking at Plasti-dipping the chrome. I've separated all the chrome components of the grille so as to be able to dip them individually. However now I am not so sure if I should be dipping the black parts of the grille as well so it will all match in colour? Ive searched online and looked at countless pictures but I can't work out if people are only dipping the chrome or the honeycomb/already black areas as well??
Has anyone done this and can verify what they did please?

On my S-Edition I dipped it all Image but I think the grill might be different to the XT :dontknow:

Since this pic I have had it painted for longevity - but the dip lasted pretty good.

Just did the chrome bits. Wouldn't bother with the honeycomb. Would be a real pain to peel off if it decided not to stick properly and you won't notice the slight difference in colour/finish/shine. Not sure on the XT but my fog light surround was textured over half of it and you barely notice it
