    Well, after seeing a couple of pics with the chrome gone I decided it was time!!!

    1 on the way,



    Both painted and ready to be baked!



    Please fellas, do this whilst the Mrs is out and Tara, if you see this! I'm sorry



    And the finished article!



    Sorry for the pants pic, the left grill wasn't even clicked in properly! But will get a better one in the morning as I had got dark!



    Hope you all like!!!
    If it aint broke, don't fix it!!!

    Look very good!

    Do you have the chrome surrounds around the windows too?

    I'm thinking of getting rid of all the chrome, undecided yet
