    Default Modding my grill

    While I get my hands on a decent front grill I decided to mod the one I have.
    I took the chromed part out (separate body) and I found a few posibilities after inspecting what was underneathe the chromed body. After a little cleaning and sanding the rought spots on it this is what I get.

    I plan to fill all the holes on the center trim ( whiskers) and then prime and paint it. Here is where the first question comes out, would you color code it or paint it mate black?
    As you can see, right in the center there is the opel logo which is part of the body itself, here comes the second question would you show it or place back the original cap, which by the way used to have a chevrolet logo on it which I removed and could be replaced with an Irmy, Opel, etc.

    Do you like it so far...honest?
    What color would you choose?
    With center cap with logo or without center cap?
    Any comments are welcome

    it has potential, mat black would look good on a dark car.

    Sorry about my dumb english, but I canīt quite understand what you mean here....you like the center cap on with a badge on it?

    Oh and the petrol prices...well...itīs a little advange, thank to this countryīs natural resources. Other wise I will had to change my Vec for a bicicle or some skates.

    Default Here it is

    The "final" outcome.....I painted it all mate black.....which by the way I am still uncertain about if it will look better if I color code the center trim along with center thing.....like it? not? color code the center?
