    Cool Mk4 Front Grille

    Anyone experimented with the original MK4 style front bonnet gril?,

    I have an fk grill much like the original, but just straight slats, I'm a bit bored of it and the plastic has gone slightly funny anyway and i dont want to spend £50+ on an irmscher style one. Im looking for ideas a bit different.

    I found my original grill sitting in the garage and just wondered.......

    Has anyone ever sprayed the chrome V black and left the badge? or anything like that?

    suggestions and pics welcome please.

    Cheers.

    I cant make my mind up here, I just think the FK makes the car look a bit cheap at the front.

    I reckon im gonna put the old grill on and put some insulating tape on the chrome, and stand back and see what in think.

    or I could spray the FK the same colour as the car, to avoid the cheap plastic look?

    hmmmmm.......

    got any pictures dude? I'd be interested to see, as it sounds different.

    I put my originaly grill back on yesterday, but ive decided it looks rubbish, Ive got eyebrows too, and it just doesnt work with the original grill.

    No but you can purchase them off ebay or look at our for sale section and spray them yourself! I'm sure our members will help you to spray it up in the form of a guide. Afterall thats what were all here for to help each other.

    I like them with the V grill sprayed up in the colour of the car really suits the front end IMO. But with eye brows it may not work.
