    Default Colour Coding New Style V Grill

    I've bought a used chrome V-grill for my facelift veccy with the intention of colour coding it VXR style (as I already have the VXR pack 1 installed).

    Is it possible to spray the chrome grill?, I presume it will need sanding down to provide a key to the surface.

    Any suggestions welcome, I'm taking the car to the local bodyshop to get the damaged mirror quoted for & was going to get a quote for this aswell

    all they will need to do is flat the 'chrome' plastic for a key, etch it , plastic prime it, then on with the body colour....

    dead easy to do..

    Been quoted £30 to colour code the grill + £30 to fit = £60 total, does that sound fair?
