    Hi guys, hope this is the right thread
    Anyhow got my kidneys grills done today, personally, I like em, and its not that big a job to remove them, 20mins tops. Got em sprayed at a local bodyshop, £35. Here's a few pics, 1 before, 2 after.

    Great decision

    Makes the car look more aggressive in my opinion

    Out of interest do you know if the garage just sprayed over the chrome or did the scratch up the chrome to give the paint something to stick to?

    Sounds like a silly question I know but I've seen many jobs done the quick way and the quality is good to start until the paint starts to flake off

    Yeah I wasn't expecting £35 either
    I thought He'd have said get the guy who did em a drink, oh well, I had em back in less then a day and took them off in his shop (his tools) and put them on in shop also, so I thought all in all, not that bad a deal

    Thanks for the comments guy's

    Yeah, I asked the same questions (before hand) They used a etching primer, (just for plastics) then painted them, satin black.
    I was after that look (aggressive)
