Hi all
I am thinking of spraying my front grille black as I want to get rid of the chrome. What do think it would look like? This is a cheap option until I can get myself a proper one. I have the later zaf A grille with the full chrome surround. Also should I spray the griffin badge aswell or leave it chrome? Any advice welcome.

Cheers all
Gaz

Probably easier to spray the whole thing, otherwise you're gonna be messing around with masking tape.

What type of grille are you after?

I paid £40 for an irmscher replica and I know you can get cheaper ones which are just a badgeless version of the one you have. So you don't need to spend lots of money on a grille.

I'd say give it a go mate, I did it on my zaf b, not sure how your grille is held together but the chrome parts on mine came away. I did have to prize off the griffin as it's moulded on the back, but a little super glue and it's back on. I put some pics up on here somewhere, cost about 20 quid for primer, paint and laquer, then a few different grades of wet and dry.

Hi mate

I sprayed mine on the weekend just gone. Three or four screws on inside of the bonnet, whole grille comes out then there are clips inside the grille which should pop the chrome off. Only thing i will say is that when you have sprayed it black you will notice that the grille is a grey black not black black!!!! pic of mine all done below

i saw a astra ,one of the members that i went to show with sunday that had a sprayed black /over the chrome grille ....looked a little crappy as the paint that was over the chrome showed all the stone chips (more noticable because it was shineyish too )..so i would think about getting a after market one..take a look in the recommended company section of the site..look at FK and LMF to se if theres anything you like..FK is from germany and there prices are really good and delivery very fast too..
