what about the badge

The replacement looks great. I have this thing about badges and i am ahving them all removed from my car. I was wondering what it would look like without the badge. I bet there is a flat area behind for the badge to fit. :thumbs:

The badges from the front, or back? I completely de-badged all of my boot, before I add on my Opel badge, and I've got a picture of it, if you're after seeing what it looks like?

Hi, i'm getting my 1.4 sxi on friday and really want the V painted asap.
Can the original shiney silver one be sprayed over? or do i have to get a new one? i'm gonna get a pro to do it either way but just want to need if i need to order one before i get them to do it.

the black corsa i ave done is my brother inlaws,ours has been put back another
week from arriving and if its another then they can keep it till the 1st sept,anyway
back to topic-

you can take off your origional chrome v moulding and paint that as that will save
you buying a new badge as when you fit the vxr painted type you will also have to
replace the griffin badge as its bigger in diameter and it covers up the gap round
the edge as suppose to the origional its only the griffin in the middle and is not
part of the chrome v in which the hole is smaller.



:D
