    badge colours on a black astra ???!!!??!?

    hi everyone

    so i've come to the conclusion that i really don't want to pay £150+ to get my boot resprayed (see my last thread about the outline scratches left after debadging)....

    so i've decided i'm just going to re-badge.

    i have a black astra. i quite like the idea of 'Opelizing' my car so I've ordered a Opel blitz emblem to replace the griffin and an Irmscher badge to replace the vauxhall, and i'm gonna stick the Astra badge back where it was.

    all the badges are chrome, but i feel like doing something a little bit different with them. can anyone suggest any decent colours? i was thinking maybe white, gold, lime green ?? or should i leave them as chrome ??

    cheers

    gold on black looks chavvy imo, white, lime green or performance blue would look good

    yeah i'm thinking white actually.

    to spray badges, do you just need 1 can of white spray ??

    or do i need to primer, paint and lacquer it ??

    I did my old ones from my 1st mk4 matt black (Dint have any laquer at the time) all i did was spray black straight onto the chrome lol, Came off really easy tho so i would advise doing it properly unless you wanna be doing them again next time u wash car :P

    cheers leon mate.

    just looked at your SXi thread.

    how did you paint the side rub bars ????? did you spray them whilst on the car or did you take them off to spray them ?

    thinking about doing this as mine are grey on black and would look better black imo!!

    cheers

    Red WOULD look good but some cars already have red badges ie the SXi door badge, Fair enough its a door badge but its still red lol.

    I would go for lime green, Gold like stated looks chavy, No amount of gold on your car will make it "Bling" lol, White could look good too.

    As said the final decision will always be down to you.

    Oh btw replied to your PM
