    Grille fitted

    Hi,
    Just thought I'd say I have started my modding campaign with an irmscher grille. Arrived this afternoon and it's on already.

    I can't find the thread but I remember someone talking about painting the arrow on the bonnet pull, cos it sticks out like a sore thumb! Does anyone know what type of paint is best to use?

    Thanks

    A black marker pen works quite well

    Cheers guys. I'll use a marker til it gets on my nerves too much then we'll see what happens!
    Actually can't believe the difference it's made, happy with it.

    just get yourself a black touch up pen from halfords - any flat black would do - if you go the marker pen route you'll always be re-doing it.
