    Question looking to pick up some irmscher caps for the grille (griffin replacement)

    Basically, the griffin on the grille, i want to change. I got this idea from the following eBay link:
    http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/ASTRA-G-Mk4-VX...iewItemQQptZUK

    What i want to know is, after much failed searching ....... does anyone here know where i can pick these caps up from?

    Alternatively, is there any other options i can have, or am i pretty restricted to griffin/irmscher really?

    Might look tacky to some, but looks discreet & different to me

    As a side note .... RE: the 'v' thread in the astra forum - the grille i bought was listed as "van" in the title, but the description was pretty lacking in any, well, description. I'm assuming van & hatchback grilles for the MK4 are the same?

    cheers hayley. I'd seen that actually on eBay, but i was after something SLIGHTLY different.

    The one in the pic has a red dot on the i. I know, very minor and picky, but different all the same.

    The seller of the original grille - while looking through their items, they've bought/sold silver irmscher round badges, but i've no idea where from, or how to get my hands on them (they look cack anyway imo & they used them instead of the griffin on the boot - which looked cack x2)

    But the round badges with the red dot for the i must've come from SOMEWHERE.

    If i can't get my hands on one, then it'll be the lmf jobby. Bit of a price though is that - £10 for a tiddly badge.

    Was going to crack on sanding down the 'V' today, but it was cold, so i wimped out.

    create a photobucket.com account & copy+paste the URL here

    alternatively, upload to imageshack.us & copy the URL here

    Need to get cracking with mine tomorrow really. Had a feel of the 240grit paper. I'm a paper newbie lol & all this is new stuff to me, but i did expect 240 to be much rougher than what it is.

    Anyway, i'll probably end up buying the £10 exnepsive badges from lmf as i can't find alternatives anywhere
