    Opel bonnet pull for aftermarket grilles (pics)

    in addition to SXT's brilliant thread here http://www.astraownersclub.com/vb/sh...=178233&page=2

    i thought these pics might be useful for people putting an aftermarket grille on their car. instead of doing the chop and move back mod, i bought an opel bonnet pull direct from my local Vauxhall dealership which is shorter than the normal vauxhall one so it doesn't stick out of the grille. This bad picture just shows how the bonnet pull itself differs. (opel one at top)



    and just for good measure. here's my car with her new LMF crosshatch style grille. 'i' badge is in the post!

    I debated the crosshatch from LMF, it's a very good fit by the looks of it too!

    you're spot on kris. it didn't come today so i thought, bollocks, i'll do it anyway. it'll be the cherry on the cake when it arrives.

    nry, i was really happy with the fit actually. i wasn't expecting much but apart from the cheap feel plastic, it's really good value. i'm happy. if you're getting one from LMF though, get it from their ebay shop. it's £10 cheaper than their own website for some reason??

    the grand old sum of £2.56. just go into your local vaux dealership and ask for part number 90527210. they probably won't have one in but mine took 2 days to come in. it's better in my opinion than chopping and moving. quicker and easier too
