After weeks of spraying in the evenings, grill finally went on the car this evening, and now I am not sure if I am too keen on it.
The bottom of the V-strip from the old grill has marked and damaged the bumper, meaning there is now scratch on the top of the bumper. Tried polishing it out but its not having any of it.
So ... now the old grill is in pieces, started sanding the chrome V down reading for spraying. Eventually once the chrome V is sprayed, it will be going back on the car and the debadged grill will be up for sale!
