    De-chromed Facelift Grill

    Finally got round to being brave enough to remove the grill surround, which came out surprisingly easily lol. Gave it a quick rub down, and prepped it for painting. Gave it plenty of coats of halfords matt black and a couple of lacquer, using hot air gun in between coats to speed things up a bit.
    Left overnight to harden properly and fitted first thing this morning.

    I think the results speak for themselves. It matches in perfectly with the rest of the grill.

    Thanks for all the comments people

    Sulaiman : I'll get a pic from distance for you as soon as I can

    1animal1 : Is her A3 a pre-facelift? As i have a pre-facelift grill lying around

    Could paint it for you too if you like, if it is pre-facelift
