    Default Red boot strip please

    Hi all,

    Not done any mods to the car for ages now so getting itchy!! Been toying with the idea of spraying up the chrome boot strip red but retaining the chrome "Vectra" and carbon vxD badge. Would someone please be able to mock it up for me?



    thanks in advance, Rich

    Thanks for doing that for me, I do like it as I've always though that chrome strip was a little too big. Might get a second one from the scrap yard and have a play. That way I can decide if I like it before I fit it!

    Thats the best idea. At least you can go back to the chrome if you dont like it. Personally i think the one fitted now contrasts the car pretty well and a red or any other colour would spoil it.
