    good on you mate, I got rid of the chrome on mine a while back, but I just replaced it with the shadowline trim as I couldn't be bothered with the hassle of spraying...

    So fair play Pics are required though

    Jesus mate, You've done a good job on that so far, Keep up the work!

    Also your way is much cheaper. so if I trusted myself I'd have done it your way, but im too impatient!

    yeh, i always wanted it black for whan i get the rest of the m sport body kit!, as the crome looks poor when the kits on, but in the sun and when its cleen the crome looked good!, but not with the m sport kit. I am getting used to it still myself
    I am also very impatient and found myself telling myself to slow down. If i had a garage i would have done it slower, but hey ideal world

    Looks spot on mate - I'm not a fan of the chrome trim myself. Matches the black grills well (my next upgrade - they are the only chrome on my car).
