    Colour coded V Grille

    Hey guys,

    I was sat at home bored today and fancied doing something to the car...with the old V grille sat in the cupboard under the stairs i thought id try and give it the VXR look and colour code the V black.

    I had a 'sports' grille before and was never completely happy with it, in my opinion it looked a bit tacky. So I bought some 800 paper, some plastic primer and black gloss paint and had a bash! I usually shocking at DIY jobs but im more than pleased with the result!

    Before :



    After :




    Im in the process of doing the boot strip now im hooked!

    Before :



    After : WIP!

    i like the new grille mate but i really don't understand why people put VXR badges on normal astras, M3 badges on regular BMW's and Turbo badges on non-turbos!!

    if you want a VXR, buy one! if you cant afford one, don't fake it!


    it's like going round to girls and telling them about your 12 inch dick, then when they get back to yours and you whack out your 5-incher, you just look like an idiot. same thing really!
