Mk 2.5 Gloss Black Grills

Recommended Posts

Has anyone had there front grills (and rear diffuser) done in gloss black on there mk2.5 instead of leaving it as the standard grey plastic? Im looking at doing this to mine but wondered if anyone had any pics of theirs that have had it done? Im going to colour code the chrome bonnet lip and high gloss black the upper and lower front grills (zetec s) and fog light surrounds. Not too sure on the rear diffuser yet, may go black, may just look at something darker like graphite. Anyone?

i had a mk 4 golf in that colour, its lovely. thanks for pics folks, taking my bonnet lip to the sprayer tomorrow to get body coloured and as soon as it arrives, im taking my new ST grill and fog surrounds to get super glossed black. May take the lower grill at the same time but unsure if its a good idea to drive any distance with no lower grill to protect whats behind it
