    Default V Grille

    bought a chrome v off the 'bay which i'm going to colour code, was going to take the middle black background off to start with but it seems to be attached to the griffin which is in turn joined to the 'v'. can anyone tell me the easiest way to get them apart without smashing into pieces. ta.

    i'm puzzled as to why the griffin is joined to the 'v' 'cos you can buy a pre primed one ready for painting without the griffin or backplate so was wondering if it could be carefully cut off where attached

    the black backing is clipped to the rear of the v grill, and the griffin is stuck with badge tape to this, also it has a few lugs on the back of badge, so its quite firmly fitted. take care when seperating

    looking at the one i've got it appears to have the griffin attached at points either side, like a sort arch shape along bottom... these are the points i thought might need to be cut... will check tomorrow for definate

    I recently got a spare to have a go at colour coding it and used a soldering iron with large tip to seperate the chrome section from the black grill. The griffin badge just popped off.

    managed to get it off today after a good nights sleep as i was looking at seperating the wrong bit...DOH! already got it prepped ready for some primer and paint, only thing now is that i've sort of changed my mind about coding it to match the panacotta paint and doing it black instead!!!
