Black GPS with White Vinyl

I just wondered...Everyone has put black vinyl on the front grille for all the colours except black (obviously) but does anyone know what White vinyl would look like on a black GPS?

I really like the vinyl idea and I want to spray my top grille black and then cover the middle bit with some white vinyl. Just wondered if anyone knew what this looked like or if they had a photo?

Opinions please? or

Also does anyone know where I can go to get it done and how much it'll cost?!

Re: Black GPS with White Vinyl

the reason people put black vinyl there is for it to flow wid the line of the top grille n bottom. giving it the appearance of a full grille. white would just look plain odd
just my opineon tho

Hmm I'm not sure about the white vinyl, photoshop anyone?

Also I think spraying the top grille black will look good, should then match the bottom grille.

IMO, just spray the top grille black.

Re: Black GPS with White Vinyl

thanks guys...especially for the photoshop...way better than any of my rushed attempts lol!

It looks better than I thought it would but still not keen...guess i'll just be sticking with the chrome and adding a top black grille to it...should make it look abit smarter anyway I hope!!

I've no idea about the silver grille...I guess you can buy silver spray paint just like black but whether you can match it i'm not sure...might have to respray both grilles...

Re: Black GPS with White Vinyl

Where do you get the top vinyl from for the grill? As i want my top one black to match the other! Think it would look nice!

manthatkidisscrewed that idea did sound good as I have the Black GP too.. but the photoshop version didn't look so great!!

It would just be black spray paint...most likely matt black from your local halfords! I'm going to give it a go later I think! Yeah I know what you mean...I'm quite gutted about it lol.

Don't know how much better it'd look in real life though...not really a risk worth taking if it looks naff!

Re: Black GPS with White Vinyl

Thanks for that manthatkidisscrewed! Just need to find out how to get that damn grill off now!

Let me know if you do decide to do it. I think that with the Punto Side stripes it would look brilliant!

Just grab one side of the grille with both your hands and yank it very hard!!

no worries mate! I'm going to do my grille today I think!! I'll put some pics up when its done!

I'm really thinking about it, cos the vinyl can always be removed can't it? Its just a waste of money but if it turns out to look good it'd be a great mod!! hmmmmmm
