    Opinions Please - Modified Bumper Grill



    What do you think of my attempts on the front grill. I have got sick of the bumper grills not matching my RS4 bonnet grill.

    Half an hour with some metal mesh (freebie)
    some body adhesive (freebie)
    a pair of wire cutters (cost me one f*^&*$g big raw blister on my finger)
    and some satin black spray paint (3.99)

    Think it looks okay and is worth doing the side ones too?

    Cheers guys

    Looks good that, I was wanting to do the same after seeing a pic of B5 with the same mod, its in here somewhere, search for "plastic mesh" he has chromed the edge '8E look' and it looks really good, needs to be done right to pull it off though

    Sorry I meant if you search for plastic mesh you will find the pic in the B5 forum so you can get an idea of what it looks like with chrome surround

    If you need some more mesh for the side grills, buy a couple of disposable BBQ's. The mesh on them would be a perfect size/shape.

    I have some of the same. it is pretty heavy gauge stuff and is coated so no risk of rusting (Painted to match as well) side ones are in the process of drying now

    Done the side ones as well now, (and repaired the ran over one till I get it replaced)

    thought I would throw some pics on to show the completed look.
    also fitted my pressed german plates and genuine german plate holders
    and lowered it another 25mm
