    Default Painting V grill.

    I recently got a V grill in primer which I painted Sapphire Black.
    The dealer sold me four cans of Vx spray paint which came in about £40.
    The cans were small 150ml, used 3 and a bit, and the paint delivery from the aerosol was poor, and 'raspy' compaired with other manufacturers paint.
    The job is OK about 90% happy with it.
    What would you expect to pay for a body shop to paint a V Grill professionally?

    £50 max I would say. its off the car, no masking needed, just a very quick rub down and paint. Most expensive thing would be the paint.

    Grill was about £46ish from LMF vauxhall. Check Big Pete's post as he has prices and part numbers.
    It is a modification I feel is essential as that big chrome V looks nasty on any vectras other than Silver colours were it looks OK.
