Looks smart but why pay ?50 when all you need is some primer and some paint??

Just drag yourselfs to Halfaurds for the paint and it will take an hour or so!!

Would look much smarter colour coded with the VW badge IMO.

I would do it myself! Hadnt thought about it until now tho!thats wot i love about the forum!

Essex Ecsy, if I want to post some pics of my grille as to whether I should colour code it or not, could you post them in a different topic? so I can get peoples opinions?

I can e-mail you the pics!

Cheers Rich

I have a smoothed and painted engine cover, airbox and battery cover. The battery cover has been plastic welded so there is no hole in the top now. All done in solid black. [:D]

We do it because its a mod, and IMO looks nice and tidy [:D]

tis true, looks cool......

but any examples of this?

and if you didnt want "colour coded" what could you have?

in my head a union jack air brushed in black and silver would look quite cool...

Not a bad idea in my mind mate. Im looking to do this soon, weather permitting of course.

Currently i have just brought out the text on the cover with red paint to match the rest of the red features under my bonnet.

Just had a look in my photobucket album and cant find a piccy. I'll get one maybe tonight.
