    Hate to piss on your chips but custom according to the dictionary "to make (something) according to a customer's individual requirements" which he has done.

    If he had said unique "exsiting as the only one or as the sole example; single;" or "One of a kind" then you would be correct.

    Agree though, it has been done alot and does look good.

    Well, I would say that a 'custom' grill that was 'custom made' would be expected to be a individually crafted grill. Maybe it is though , in which case it's an excellent job as they have replicated an Audi one perfectly! ;)

    Still, good looking grill though.

    Holy cr*p!

    What I should have said is, custom grille, and yes it's just painted, but, custom like some nice person pointed it, is to make the original different, better, so it's been customised!!!!

    Sorry to cause a big debate, it's just a grille! That I think looks bloody good!

    And I won't scrap the sline badge, it's cool. Thank you.

    Classic forum banter. I appreciate the work you have done and think it looks good. I like the badge, a subtle variation on the original classic.

    Good job with the grill - Shame Audi don't do a "Sport" badge would have been nice to have them on my car.

    This is causing a caffufal!!!

    Yes, slap my asse, it's not an s line, but I liked the black badges so bought them, simple.
    And, they don't do a sport badge in black, and red, that subtle, and that cool, oh, and it's my car, so I can paint it pink, paint a banana on the bonnet, and drive around with a panda costume if I want!
    so ner ner ne ner ner!

    Thank you for the supportive comments, and not fussed about the other not so supportive comments.

    I will be checking your rides out closely!!

    I did mine at least two years ago with Hammerite spray paint. I reckon they last a year before the chips make them look tatty. I've redone my top one, but the bottom I've put off as its bonded in now. Its a dead easy job to pop the surround off, re-key it and dust it over though, the hard work is in the initial spray.

    I've hear good things about Plastikote.
