hi m8

i think you will find that the parts are more expensive than that,just double check
with the parts guy and make sure he`s looking at the right part numbers,he shud
be looking at the parts that are listed for opc.

the guy doesnt seem to know much considering if he works in a vxl dealer parts dep`t
as the paint you can buy in can
sprays no problem
:yes:

hi there

yeah easy to paint just flat it lightly then paint it,you also will need the new badge carrier and badge then
when its painted you assemble the parts together then just unclip the chrome 1 off the bumper grille then
clip ya new vxr colour coded 1 into place then its done easy as that m8,i dont have piccys sorry but soon as
you see how the chrome one removes then its easy from there.


heres a piccy in wot mine now looks like ;)

its ok m8 no probs :D

wot i mean by flat it is just get some 1500 or 2000 grade wet and dry and just
take the smoothness off it as that way the paint will bond to it,its wot has to be
done when ya painting anything thats primed,the black carrier sits on the new v
grille behind and the new griffin badge pushes onto it from the front but you will
need to melt the lugs down to hold the black carrier onto the painted v then after that
you fit the new replacement chrome griffin badge,you have to get the right parts as they
aint the same ones as the origionals and they also go together differently,the new primed
vxr v moulding is £52.50 plus vat then the new carrier £16.20 then the new badge £14.10
all retail prices and are plus vat,then you have the cost of painting.

i can supply and paint and all built up for anyone that wants any but i`d have to cost it up so if anyone is
interested then pm me and let me know the colour of ya car and i`ll reply with a price to supply it complete
and ready for to just fit.
