    Unhappy Chrome grill trim?

    Sorry about the size of the picture!

    Anyway i have ordered some matt black vynl to put between the 2 grill's to give it that 'single grill look'.
    I know it's not to everyone's taste! But it will have to make do until i get further funds (cheapest sort of mod i can do atm).

    Anyway my question is: Where do you get chrome trim that will fit the gaps indicated by the red circles on the picture.
    Is there any chrome trim that slots straight in as i don't want to be putting glue etc behind it.

    A link would be great, i have spent ages now and not really returned much...

    Thanks in advance Icemonkey.

    If you can't afford a mod, don't do it on the cheap imo.

    maybe have it wrapped or plastidipped so you can revert back to standard without damage if\when people take the mickey.

    but if you're going to insist> https://www.google.co.uk/search?clie...hannel=suggest

    Might be worth your while getting it photo shopped to see what it will look like first, before you spend time and effort on it.

    Or a total budget method, use a thin strip of foil and stand back a bit to see the effect.

    No problem, we are here to help

    My mate was considering a chrome surround to his number plate so used foil first to see what it would look like, he decided against it in the end, but to find out only cost him about 10 minutes and a pair of scissors rather than £20 and messing about fitting them.
