    Default New grill finished!!

    I have now got my new grill fitted! Thanks to a good friend of mine John who made this for me.

    It started as a standard Opel single bar grill. then John made the modifications to remove the OPEL Blitz from the grill and make a perfect flat faced mounting for the Monaro Griffin Badge.

    I then painted it myself in original shade Flame Red.

    The ***** part was the top grill. The bottom black grill was removeable, so could be left in black, but the top half was part of the grill, so I had to paint this gently by hand in matt black.

    Here are the results!!



















    Really pleased with the grill as a lot of work has gone into it, to make it look OE and also to keep it original and a one off!!

    More to come soon, including some leather detailing on the interior!!

    Hope you like!!

    Very nice matt. Were you not tempted to add a new style VX badge like you did to the Signum?

    I was very close to doing it, but at the moment there is not a new style badge that would look right on the boot.

    You know me, if I can't get get it to look 100% OE then I won't do it. But it is in the plans should the right badge come up for the boot.
