    Default Painted V-Grille fitted today

    Here's a quick picture of the painted Panacotta V-Grille that I got back from the sprayshop and fitted .

    P.S. I'll clean it and get some good pics up over the next day or so .

    Very nice Phil good job this is something that VX should have done from the factory as I feel the chrome V is too big and in your face too much. Car is looking good too.

    Cheers for the comments guys. I'm chuffed with the look of it too.

    I was going to fit the new Insignia style badge on the front and on the steering wheel, but the badge was way too big and not domed to fit the Vectra grille .

    Never mind, just a few more exterior mods left to do after the springs???

    Paint was matched with the paint code from the placard in the drivers door frame. Not sure how many coats the paintshop gave it tbh.

    That's the VXR grilles I have fitted to my VXR/XP2 bumper.
    I'm not sure if it'll fit the SRi bumper though? I know the fog light honeycombe grilles won't fit the SRi .

    As for cost, I had the front & rear bumpers, sideskirts, rear spoiler, parking sensors, aerial and V grille all prepped and painted for £300 all-in .
