    Default Another Mod - can you spot it??

    I been looking at doing this for ages......!








    So the other day I ordered a New Style Griffin Badge, and then ripped mine off the back, only to find that the Hatch tailgate has 2 holes in it instead of 1.

    So not being one to back down and after MUCH deliberation, I thought , its got to go on.

    So I butchered the old badge and kept the surround circle, sanded the inside edges down and used this to cover the one outer hole. JOB DONE.

    Then I used the new style Griffin badge to cover the other one.

    To be honest, I prefer it this way as the new style griffin badge was 53mm and looked a little diddy on the back, the surround chrome circle makes it look the correct size.

    But what a pain in the buttock, had to take it one and off about 4 times to get it centred and cover up both holes adequetely.

    YOU COMMENTS PLEASE!!!!

    Looks good, its hard with silver but when mine got taken of the back of my black astra i just stuck black insulation tape over the holes...

    It eventually got welded/sprayed, but i forgot for 6 months

    Looks familiar! I did the same on my last Astra SRi back in December 2008.



    Not sure it looks right on the Vectra B though. I have thought about doing the upgrade on my convertible Astra, but like the Vectra B, I think the Astra G is too old to carry the new style badge.

    Looks good on the Astra. Colour coded V helps.

    I was the same once I realised the new one wouldnt fit without some mod'ing, but did it anyway. I thought , ive bought it now may as well stick it on.
