    Default Black grill

    Been messing around today with my grill, there were a couple of nasty stonechips and a little bit of discolouring on the chrome so I took it off, blasted it with P400 primed it and did the whole thing gloss black, I think the effect is quite striking...





    Hopefully, time willing I am going to use orange enamel tommorow for the background behind the griffin, I have had a mess around on photoshop and it should turn out something like this...



    So what do you think guys, I am going to do more orange accent bits....
    Orange and black is a killer colour combination that I just love

    Nice mate, think orange vs black looks good Shb did something similiar on a facelift and looks spot on.

    Where did you get the corner splitters from not seen them before on a Vec, eyebrows look different to the norm too.

    Looks good mate, did you spray the grill too? I'm also curious about the splitters.

    The splitters are MC Rallying Cobra ones, originally bought for my MK3 Cav SRI (ssshhhhhhhhh!!!) and have been sat in the garage, I offered them up to the Vec and they fitted that well that I couldn't not put them on, everyone who has seen them so far has loved them.

    I made the eyebrows myself because I wasnt to keen on the shape of any of the ones that I found for sale on tinternet, and I like doing things differently to what you normally see, wait till you see what I'm going to do with the back lights, I have had a mess on photoshop and they look awesome, but you can never really tell till you do it for real....
