hey, it's really easy to take the chrome off of your grill. Granted I did mine with the grill off the car, it shouldn't be much more to remove it when the grill is still on there. It's very simple, the chrome is a U channel shaped jobber that is slid over an existing bar on the grill, there are metal barbs on the trim that kinda grab onto the plastic as it is pushed on, and bites into the plastic when you try to take it off. All you need is a flatbladed screwdriver to gently pry the chrome off of the bar, making the back end (open end) of the channel bow-out to release the barbs. When I took mine off, the plastic was a little rough underneath, small scratches and sofourth, but with a little armorall or some such product, it looks as good as new.
