.....the Perspex grill.

I know it's hugely popular to go for a sports grill upgrade but funds are tight and I had some carbon vinyl spare still.

So a small can of red enamel paint and some black plastic paint in hand this is what I did.








For less than a tenner I'm really happy, hope you like.

Regards,

That looks quality, well done, was it difficult to take apart?

Thank you (all).

Heating up the clips and the glue helped a lot, along with some gentle prising with suitable flatheaded screwdrivers.

Was pleasantly surprised how straightforward the grill came apart, the biggest pain was the vinyl was applied twice due to the chrome paint lifting off the panel on the reverse of the vinyl.

that looks spot on, well done. I think it looks better than the sports grill in all honesty which can give a dated look to some cars. smooth lines, carbon fiber and £10..... nice
