    decided weeks ago to colour code my front chrome v but changed my mind and painted it gloss black in a kind of toring car stylee lol although i think they are matt finish,having done the same on my last pre facelift car i decided that colour coding wasnt to meand so black it is,bit fiddly aned nerve wracking to remove the part from car but straight forward enough,also removed the backing plate that holds the chrome griffin badge on three coats of plastic primer ,3 coats of gloss and 3 coats of lacquer, anyhow enough waffle what you think of my efforts? pics are not the best tbh cos of damp weather
