So we decided to polish the car yesterday but couldnt in the end as it was too cold and the polish wouldnt come off easy! So i decided to remove the lower grill and me and the mrs cut off the excess plastic from the top corners of the grill and then i got my brother to spray it black for me. Im going to fit it tomorrow after work as it's still tacky and its getting quite dark her now, so a few pics of how we did.

Before :



After:




After spraying:





Will post a pic up tomorrow after its fitted to show you all, any comments welcome.

Was it easy to spray mate? I think I'll get my mate to spray the grills and foglight surrounds. Everytime I spray something it looks terrible
