    Default I painted my grille

    Hi,

    I decided that an irmscher grill for my Vectra was not an option i.e. too expensive so decided to do it on a budget.

    As per usual, I failed to take before and during pics, so I am afraid you will have to put up with the finished article.

    I popped along to Halfords one Saturday morning and purchased 2 x tins Vauxhall black paint, one tin of primer and one tin of lacquer.

    Once I had carefully unclipped the chrone 'V' part of the grille, I set to work.

    I had toyed with the idea of painting the whole grille, griffin centre badge included but eventually decided to mask it up and leave it untouched.

    What do you all think?

    Very good job.

    I've had to buy a second grille now and give it a quick spray up and waiting for a replacement properly colour coded item to arrive.
