    Let me know how you make out. I refer to it as the smile on the front of my Explorer. I wish they would make a self sticking overlay for that area. The paint chips there and it would be nice to neaten it up with something in chrome.

    Don't know what it is called, although I know that it is a part of a larger piece. I can't remember if it is the grille or the plastic piece that goes all the way across and holds in the taillights.

    judging from this:

    it appears to be a part of the grill.

    If this is what you are talking about, it's part of the header panel. Check the link I posted earlier:

    If you cant find stick ons you could try chrome paint. Not sure how the finish would look but I'm sure your local panelbeater will be able to give you an idea of how the end job would look.
