    Grill Ideas

    My cars been booked in for imo some major rectification work. Basically two new doors, rear quater took back to bare metal and put right, bonnet re welded and put right, both bumpers resprayed and fixed and side skirts. ITs left me in a bit of a pickle really as a fair whack is being took on by vauxhall after, there previos rectification work has gone tits up and it means I can not have my de handling done rub strips removed, due to the time scale and the amount of work being took by the rectification work. But I may be able to squeeze in a recessed grill being blended into the bonnet like what marv did, do you reckon it will look right on my car. opnions please.

    how about blending in that one you have now? would be a little different - you normally only see the standard recessed grills blended in

    Scotty boy its a regal bonnet its a replica of the lumma bonnet but steel.
    The guy who had adjusted the bonnet made it close two tight causing it to crack.

    My only concern is my front end is mainly slats and little mesh used. Just thought it would be out of place
