Re: Kustom Grille. The Honeycomb- Style.

@ Colin:

Gently lift up the upper part and at the same time pull the
grille towards you, from different parts of the grillle.

Link, answer #5

http://ftcf.org/smf/index.php?topic=10762.0

The grille has several clips, so be careful that you don´t
brake these. Mainly pull it to get it off, push it back.

The same with the lower one.

@Tad:

Thank´s I guess it just takes several " Evo´s " to get the
final touch.

If you read the thread he tells you how he does it. Uses the grill from a Seat Altea. Cut, glued and painted it look at post number 7

I don't think stormi is still about to offer advice unfortunately.

But I'm going to have a go at making one of these honeycomb grilles myself.

Does anybody have any idea what he used on the lower grille lip.
The bit where the lower lip is gloss black with the chrome edging. Anybody any clue on how he did it?

I think it looks great!

Ah the Legend returns!
I didn't expect to hear from you. You still got the Bravo?



I have circled in red the gloss black lip bit that protrudes more than the standard grille. Is that achieved using just the Seat Altea grille?.. And just a bit of chrome edging applied.

Anyway, I've ordered the bits and we'll see how it goes. If it turns out anywhere near as good as yours, I'll be happy.
