    Default Griffin logo backing colour for Front Facelift V?

    Evening all

    Im in the process of preparing my front Chrome V (Facelift 06) to be colour coded (Black Sapphire) and wondered if any of you fine members decided to paint the plastic V backing behind the griffin logo a different colour to black and maybe had some pictures to share?

    I like the idea of a dark red backing under the griffin badge but what I imagine in my head may look terrible once done so any ideas would be great.

    Cheers

    EDIT : Oh just to say that im leaving the griffin badge chrome

    Got it from Paul_Sri150, can get em off ebay or dealers. its from an insignia (not sure front or rear?) Sanded the back of badge virtually flush as it has a slight dome shape to it, then sanded/cut the grill hole larger until the badge and grill diameters were the same.

    Have had to re think on the new Badge. Standard badge 88mm new badge 95mm

    I dont have the talent or the nerve to remove 3.5mm off the grille.

    Shame as I really like that new badge, ah well
