    Do you need a primer and lacquer at all or just thoroughly degrease and clean first.

    Just a good clean first, make sure it's bone dry as well before applying. It helps to stand the can in a jug of warm water before spraying as well for a more even coat.

    You can get a 'Glosifier' which will give the Plastidip a slightly shiny look if you don't want the matte finish

    Wrapped would be better for quality of finish and longevity.

    wrapping the grill can be done in situ but would be better to remove it which is a bumper off job as it clips in from the back

    I personally for the grill surround would have it wrapped if it’s not too much money or too much work, as I have my front grill sprayed with around 4 layers of plasti dip and it’s chipped quite badly over time with crap off the roads etc. But then again it’s cheap enough to redo without too much effort so swings and roundabouts to both!
