    Default facelift grille

    Hi i was thinking of changing my grille for an irmscher with the alloy strip at the top, but after looking at pics on this site i have seen a few facelift vectras with what looks like the original grille but the main chrome bit has been changed to body colour.
    I think this grille looks great can anyone tell me where i can get one of these?
    do you have to buy the whole grille or can you get just part to be painted?
    Thanks Ian..

    Default prep

    I didnt realise you could paint the chrome.
    ok this is my plan if i'm wrong will someone please tell
    1 lightly rub down with 1200 wet and dry
    2 spray with plastic primer
    3 spray with grey primer (not sure if i need to do this or not )
    4 lightly rub down with 1200 wet and dry
    5 spray with colour
    6 spray with laquer

    Is this the correct way to paint it?
    Do i need to use normal primer after plastic primer before colour?
    Does the colour need to be completly dry before applying laquer? i ask this question because i have been told by some its better to put laquer on when colour is still tacky and by some to let it dry completly

    would you recomend using genuine vauxhall paint ?

    Thanks ian..
