i painted the grille this afternoon

a kind of matt black. the standard colour is a bit of a dark grey metallic. its kind of the same colour as the lower grille now. i got a little carried away and also painted the chrome ring around the badge. i quite like it, although it was a bit of a rush job, i can redo it better i suppose if it needs it. some matt black vinyl might be in order fr between the grille's. oh and btw i havn't crashed into that tree, its just that we park 3 cars wide on the driveway and its a bit tight for space.

Re: i painted the grille this afternoon

Yeah i like the idea mate, maybe something i will consider to keep with my red and black theme.

As much as i really like the idea of merging the grilles in some way i worry that yours now will look like a massive void because its so dark.

It will look like its going to eat you, lol.

Re: i painted the grille this afternoon

I like it, i really do. In my opinion though you need to do something about the blue Fiat badge, it doesnt look right.
