    New grille: Honeycomb version 2

    We've allseen the Honeycombe grilles that Astrasport and I have, like this..






    Well i've just re-done mine this weekend, eventually. I hit a bird a while back and it dis-lodged the mesh from the frame. But as i've been going about with the standard V grille in, i've quite liked the silver V at the front of the car. Just seems to give it something, rather than being a bit plain.
    So i decided that when i fixed my honeycombe one, that i'd fix the V to it too.
    Here's the result.







    Hope you like. I do.
    Opinions?

    PS, does that make it true One-off now?

    nicely done, i like that. different and subtle.

    might be worth investigating how the V would look blacked out:

    Well, obviously if it was the same black as the rest of the grille, as in sprayed with something, you may have a point.

    Looks good mate, definately a one off. And as said previously, looks like it should have come from the factory like it on the GSi

    No longer owns an Astra


    Bye bye VXR Castle Combe Edition - because it's done more laps of Castle Combe than most Bergs have of the Ring

    Not normally a fan of these home made creations using the standard grill, but that looks really good. Very OE looking and it's really the grill they should have put on the GSi. I've always wondered why Vauxhall didn't do something a bit different with the grill on the sportier models.
