No longer available from LMC is the blackout center grill which was OEM on my 78 Ranger XLT-Why???
If I knew this was gonna happen-I would of bought 2->>the silver/Argent or Chrome is just not for me.

SEM plastic paint and adhesive promoter works great on the Argent but not the chrome one. Takes extra prep to get the chrome plastic scuffed enough to get the paint to adhere to it.

There is hope for us!!! Found a plain virgin uncoated unpaint grill insert. Perfect for using SEM products on.


Got Treed but the actual source is Dennis Carpenter, so order from them.
