    Cool Colour coding my pre f'lift grill!!!

    Decided to have a bash at colour coding my grill, so thought I would post my progress on here.

    Last nite managed to seperate the chrome surround from the black plastic, rather than trying to mask it off. Was a bit akward trying to remove all of the adhesive and nearly lost a finger in the process.
    Gave it a good rub down and then a coat of primer filler, so far so good.
    Also primed some cheap eyebrows I got from ebay, so front should look very different when complete(well thats the plan).

    here are some pics so far, forgot to take a before pic, so there is an old one that shows the front.
