    That would look Good with the Bonnet Release Mod and colour Coding of the Bonnet Pull at the Same time so it blends in!

    Is worth it mate, have done the same on mine. Trial fit looks great with the mesh behind. Sits about the same distance back as the mesh does in the bumper, so looks spot on. Just awaiting mine to be finished sprayed and it will be fitted for good!! Has only taken me about 3 months to get it sorted out!!

    The mesh will be added, once the surround has been sprayed. The mesh is staying black. It will sit at the back of the grille surround, At first I thought I may have to affix it to the back of the grille, but the way in which I have cut the mesh, it sits snuggly into the bonnet recess and doesn't budge, so no need for glues etc! Jobs a good 'un! I didn't like the look of it sitting flush with the front of the grille, wanted to have some uniform with the GSI bumper. And it's spot on.

    Can't wait to get it on after all this time now! Will post pictures up when my friend has kindly done the spray job for me.
