What's the best, most fool-proof way of applying a wash to a chrome grill?
I know the basic process, just haven't done it before and don't want to use
something that is going to remove the chrome, be too hard to remove from
the high spots, et cetera.
I've always used thinned gloss black paint. Flat paint will just not
look right. If you have a grille with multiple planes you may have to
work on each plane separately. To do otherwise will end up with puddles
in places you don't want.

So, apply the wash, then just wipe the excess? Or do you wait for it to
dry and try to use a bit of thinner on the raised bits?
