Tremendous Jace - Are they the black badges from the dealer or did you spray your silver ones yourself? Take it its the diamond black metallic pearl?

Cheers for the positive remarks..[:D]

She just normal gloss black, not metallic.

Got the badges from Awsomegti, ?34 the pair inc vat & P&P.

So how do I remove the reg ?? is that photoshop trickery needed ??

Thinking of removing the red inserts from the TDI badges & replacing them with black (stealth)& it would be a chome outter ...

What you think [?][?]

I Was going to use carbon fibre style insert but thats a bit MAX MUPPET isnt it [?]

frosticles,

I made the front badge ( Blue Peter ) I used an ANI badge & TDI badge, painted the holder black ( grey normaly) marked out its shape & did a bit of cutting here & there & ay presto an All RED TDI grill badge.

I did such a good job some bleeder pinched the original one I made[:(!], so what you see is mark2...

Lots of Flys on the front cos I hadnt cleaned her for a few days when I took the pics[:I], if I had just cleaned her you'd have had to tone down the screen[:D]

I did hope to give her a good seeing to today(ooh misses), but dam rain hasnt stopped for most of the day[:(!]

Nah, I just dont brake too late & make loads of mess.

But When I say not cleaned for a few days, I mean I did a 60mile round trip to ikea after I cleaned it & then it sat there for the day after[:I]
