Cant make up my mind so I thought I'd see what you lot think.

Here's what she looks like now but there will be angel eyes going on in the not too distant future.


Any thoughts appreciated.

I Took mine out...To Paint them...2 weeks ago...still haven't done it!
Whoops hit thanks instead of quote :confused

Haha though.

Think I'll probably just buy a set off ebay so I can take them off if I change cars. Saying that though are they hard to paint ie is it just a spray you can buy in Halfords or do you need to get a pro to do it?

Would like to see how they look fitted if anyone has a pic with this colour car...?

I'm going black centres with a white lip, which will leave my car totally black and white... well excluding the tail pipes on the exhaust:rofl

I may go that route with black wheels at some point next year. Not completely sure yet but I'm toying with the idea of tinting the windows as well. If I go that route I'll defintely get the black grills. As it stands though I'm actually leaning more towards keeping them chrome....

I was thinking of putting in some black mesh instead of the slats, only trouble is is the bonnet pull comes out through the slats so it may not work properly.
You'll need to have a cut out in the mesh. It will look tidy so long as you put something similar to thin air hose around it (air hose with a slice going from top to bottom so that you can open it up and feed it around the cut out):thumbsup
