    Wink Colour coding - opinions please

    Hey chaps,

    My son works in a body shop and I asked him to chat to a friendly painter about a spot of colour coding on the vectra, I want the sills and front n rear bumper aprons done.

    Cos they are textured plastic theres a bit of prep required apparently but all do able which is cool!

    However, the painter is concerned about the front bumper apron because its so flexible, where as the others are more rigid, hes suggested fitting a rigid aftermarket spoiler which he would colour code and fitting the VX mudflap kit as they are moulded and look like a body kit.

    The mud flaps are about £40 for the set, and I dont have a price for paint yet so I will need a cheap front spoiler that doesnt look too tacky.

    Cheapest I have found is this:

    http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/1708248643...84.m1423.l2649

    Not really my cup of tea, but possibly affordable.

    So what do you think of the spoiler - any other options?

    Also has anyone had the front OEM apron coded successfully and its lasted???

    Cheers Chris

    Your car looks cool, liking that!

    Sadly my front apron doesnt have the styling of yours, its pretty flat!



    Actually your bumper is totally different (SRi I guess) so I wonder is the spoiler I linked to would even fit..........
