    Pictures to follow allmost done
    used this stuff to fill up the hollows, hard enough to put screws on IMG-20130626-00279.jpg
    then some bonding glue on the ages thats the black stuff u can see on the picture from the original post.

    used a soldering iron with flattened tip to cut off the bits from grill.

    Labour of love cutting, sandpaper, bonding, filling, drilling, primer more primer coats, paint x4 coats.

    Wanted the s3 8p ones but unfortunately would have been the whole bumper to replace so best next thing was the diy job.

    Did you create the whole front grill or buy a ready made one?
