    The blue one here looks quite nice though and that's the same colour as mine...


    Vinyl wrap split grill, so ill put up some pics now with real pics that work i hope

    I know it's never gonna look as good as a proper conversion but that takes a lot more money.

    Cheers Wez. I must admit I was worried what it would look like but was really happy with it tbh. It did me til I got around to changing the front end.

    Give it go I say. If you dont like it, you've not wasted much doing it. Just take your time.

    Sarah where did you get the chrome strips to do it?
    Might did mine, it's black so won't even need to wrap it.
    Will tide me over till I get the bumper etc.

    Hey Rom, got the chrome strips from Halfords. Yours will be easy then if its black. Good luck and put some pics up when done.
