Default Face-lift surgery

Got my clear indicators on ( they are a little smaller than the ones that came off but do fit )

Also removed the chrome surround from the standard grille and cot a couple of topcoats on the eggcrate

So should be through surgery pretty soon

What did you use to paint the grille?

I have got an egg crate too and it could do with a freshen up.

Hi Luke

Halfords grey primer and then Satin Black. Rubbed it down with 600 wet and dry to give the paint a key. ( that was a pita )Then three coats primer followed by about 5 topcoats. Just about used the whole tin with very light coats

Now to get the exhaust replaced ! I plugged about three holes yesterday and its still blowing. Hopefully new system will be here soon and I can get that fitted
