I like it. Shame I can't start the damn car!!!
:icon_thumright: nice and neat. Like it.
I have just done my Rs4 stylle lower grills with exactly the same stuff.
will post some pictures but it came out great.
got some free metal mesh from a workmen down the road, matches the size of the RS4 grill perfectly
Stupid question probably, but what is plastidip?
Has the chrome been removed using this or sprayed over?
Plastidip is just rattle can paint but it leaves a nice OEM textured look, is very matt (no shine to it) and will paint straight over the chrome, lightly scuffed with 240 grit. I used Hammerite first time and it wouldn't stick but this stuff worked a treat.
Looks great, thanks for the info. Did you do the whole grill or does the chrome part unclip for painting?
I separated the outer grill from the rest (just a few clips around the edge), sanded it with some 240 grit then gave it a few coats.
Nice one, may try that myself if I can find a bargain priced grill. Looks great mate.
Got a grille from 2001 B5 for £10 + postage if anyone interested?
I got a can of proper pastidip which you do actually dip the grill in.
helped me as themetal was much too thin
I bagged a cheapo facelift off ebay too and colour coded to replace my RS4
not seen it done before but was inspired by the insanely expesive Oettinger grille some of the yanks on audizine run run
More pics of your car please, particularly the front bumper.
what wheels are they? they look the doggs on there!
I don't know, but look at the dish on the rear wheel.
that looks excellent
Dirty I know, but here is mine.
S4 bumper, RS4 grill, bumper has had the centre bars removed (haven't finhsed the middle one!) and the OEM grills replaced with building mesh plastidipped. side vents have had the 1.8t stock foglight housing welded in to accept the existing fogs ,just need to move the FMIC down a couple of inches to make some room.
