    Are you going to remove the other badges too, I think the rear ones should go.
    Lovely finish on the paint.
    I'm interested in the chrome strips you have for the front grilles. Very posh!
    Dave
    There's a piccy of yours debadged and mine with the chrome strips (not high quality!!)

    Thanks for the comments - the chrome strip is self adhesive - £9.99 for 3m from Halfords - takes 2 packs to do the upper and lower grills - done over 2 weekends lol. Is really easy to work with however and very flexible. Easy to do the lower U round the bottom grill and I doesn't look too tacky.

    Have a chrome rear sill protector on order from LMF - however has been delayed for quite a few months now - should look good once it arrives...

    Don't know whether to debadge the VECTRA also - definitely want to keep the CDTi badge, perhaps incorporating a "190" badge to reflect the increased power ?

    Also looking to add a spoiler over time and perhaps colour code the side sills. Problem is the mudflaps and painting etc.

    18"ers would also finish the car off in my view..............
