I agree with toulebag, soda or sand blasting is the way to go. Also you can try LMC truck for a grille

Blasting is by far the better option because it leave a profile in the steel - something for the primer coat to adhear to. Acid dip cleans the metal but does not leave much of a profile. Follow up witih a good acid etch primer.
