    Default Painted front grill on my facelift veccy..

    Took me a while and abit of research from how 2"s on here but shes all done now!

    Debadged the rear and fitted "gadget man" parking sensors a while ago.


    And now onto the front grill.





    Chrome grill=urgh




    Plastic primer.


    1st coat.



    The finished article (on a very dirty car),I also changed the indicator bulbs for chrome (non orange) ones,my next mod will be black "sri like" angel eye headlights.



    Price,

    £4 for the bulbs off egay

    £12 for the primer and paint (halfrauds)
