    Rear badge

    Just bought an Astra G 1.6 in white.

    Already ordered a new grille in gloss black

    The alloys are booked in to be powder coated gloss black

    Planning on debadging the astra, vauxhall and 1.6 but leaving the gryphon

    is there anyway to get the gryphon in gloss black? or would powder coating it be my best option?

    Also while you're here would lowering it 60mm be too much for speedbumps, as im undecided wether to go 40mm or 60mm.

    Thanks guys

    The rear badge can be painted with normal rattle can paint.

    There's a How to in the technical section about painting plastic, just follow that.

    Could be worth buying a new badge to paint too. Saves you having to replace the sticky back.

    Go for both. 60 front, 40 rear. Gives a nice mean stance.

    Oh and welcome to the site.

    I can't answer that. lol.

    If your not sure, go for the safe option and have a 40mm drop all round.
    The bonus with only going -40 all round, your standard shocks will be fine. Any more than a 40mm drop you'll have to replace the shocks too.

    LMF is the place to shop.
