    Default Wrapping bootstrip & grill?

    Has anyone wrapped their bootstrip and grill rather than painted?

    I have a silver vectra and would definitely like to colour code the grill as I'm not a fan of the big chrome front. I don't like the chrome strip on the back but would it be too plain if I wrapped that also?

    Anyone that's done this got any advice?

    Also does the VXR have colour coded front and back strip?

    When buying the wrap is their a recommended place to buy from? Also what colour would be a good match for the vectra silver?

    Thanks

    VXR one comes color coded and boot strip is chrome as standard too.

    Best place might be eBay for wrap stuff.

    Black is nice with silver.

    I done my grill in black carbon looked really aggressive took it off tho as I didn't do it right so next am going to get plastic dip and spray that on the grill as ya don't need to prime it or out plus ya can peel it off if u don't like it or sell the car

    My car is star silver just to add

    That carbon does look really good, but I wanted to keep the car looking clean and simple rather than the aggressive look.

    Once you wrap it can you not peel it off if you wanted? Anyone with a silver vectra with colour coded grille?

    Might have a look on eBay for some of the wrap now gauge the prices
