    As subject you may have seen that I got my car back from the bodyshop with the lower half of the front bumper sprayed? Well I am not happy that they sprayed the lower grill the same colour as the car.

    Anyway I now need to either spray this black or replace it with the standard grill.

    Is it possible to remove the grill? Or is it a case of cutting it out or spraying it black?

    This is what I mean by the way:

    Yes the bottom part does come off. You remove the bumper and unclip it.

    The grill is part of the lower section.

    What they should have done was masked up the grill part and sprayed the rest.
