    Ive sprayed my Kamei grill orange

    the thread title says it all really

    The grill had a few bits of rust on it so I took it off, prepped it up, primed it ready to go black again then went out on the lash with the intent of doing it black the next afternoon once recovered

    However, after a copious ammount of Stellas I came home canny hungry and went looking for food in the garage where I came across the now dry grill. In my infinate pissed wisdom I also found a can of orange spray. The results are.... well.... different . I kind of like it sort of. More pics will follow when I take some properly but its an alright spray job bearing in mind I was mortal haha


    So from this;



    To this (excuse the numberplate being on the wonk, halfords sticky pads disagreed with my pressure washer );



    Comments welcome but Im prepared for a torrent of abuse lol
    It would definitely go better with an engine in it

    I thought you were joking...

    ...erm...not to my taste. Think it looks shocking . But hey, your car.

    I would personally take this to be the first signs you have a drink problem!

    you know what, if you carry more orange into the theme of your car i think you might well pull it off.

    there is a black lupo in dundee with orange alloys etc and it works really well.

    orange bump strips, orange door handles, and I think you might be onto something

    I like it, put a black logo on it and you're there.

    Reminds me of this:

    Tell me what you've done, not what you're going to!

    Just the grille alone then I don't think its the best looking although, as much as I hate renault clio's theres a new shape model near where I live which is black and orange. Orange alloys door handles, mirrors, bump strips, badges etc. sounds a bit on the wild side but looks rather nice.
    Kind Regards,

    Dean
