    'Opel-lize' car or 'Griffin-ize' grill?

    I'm trying to decide what to do about matching the car and grill........There are two options really.
    1. I could 'Opel-lize' the car now I have an Opel grill. The question is what do I need and where's best to get them from (German ebay?)? I figure that I'll need:
      • Wheel centres (still only got 4-stud alloys)
      • Boot badge
      • Steering wheel logo (an extra for completeness)
      • Engine cover (if getting really into it, I guess)
    2. The other option would be to 'Griffin-ize' the Opel grill.......and probably a cheaper option. Again, the question is what do I need and where's best to get them from?
    Any info on either option would be most welcome .
    Thanks,
    Dave

    ive got my whole car opel but she is an opel and is from belguim! if you do opel at the front id match the back because i think it look silly then if it opel on front and vaux on the back. if you do go opel the airbag is expensive!

    I did everything Opel/OPC, if your going to do it you have to go the whole way, e.g Wheel centres, steering wheel badge, plug cover etc
