I brought a chrome one of cmc was about 60 quid so guess the carbon one would be about the same

Rocket consider your chrome grill well and truly oggled :cool: Top dentistry!
I take it the top and bottom grill are one piece :dunno:
May one enquire as to the price and the vendors location. I:
That sir is superior chrome grillage :D

i love the look of those chrome grilles, and i'm told the quality is top-notch, too. however, i was too tight for such a luxurious extra (!), which is why i opted for the regulation (read 'budget') de-badged 'plastic' grille!
I must say, the carbon-look is very cool, but i can't help but feel it would work best on a heavily-modified van, or perhaps a ride fitted with matching 'carbon-look' extras (such as mirror shells or maybe even race-look carbon-fibre bumpers!).
OK... I admit it... I'm jealous of both! :D But, given my recent driving record :eek: , perhaps I'm better off sticking to budget-priced front-end mods! H:

Here's my de-badged grill, there are quite a few on german E-Bay incl. carbon fibre look and are lees than 20. They are made by FK Automotive.

Fakey fibre is not a substitute for the real deal though paul! If someone does a proper CF one for the long nose I'm so there, (Off to Email Carbon Joe...my CA contact!) ;)

Oh don't get me started on German Ebay.... so many lovely toys so little chance of getting the big ones back over here, (multi-van interiors for example)

nice one guys, cheers for the tip. the pics do certainly look awesome, can you remember if you used 7, 9 or 12mm diameter chrome strip? apparently there is a choice..

cheers

I've still got some of the stuff I used on the bottom grill which is 3.5 mm,
and the picture in the original thread (below) looks like it says 7 mm on the packet
(see what I mean about the 10 registration fee LOL:)

Awesome, 7mm it is then.

Hmm, 10 on chrome trim or 10 on membership...... :confused: the former looks mega cool, but the latter opens up a world of solutions. Tough call!

I'm going with the trim today and membership on payday! Darn end of month decisions...
:( At least this way I have something to keep me occupied in the evenings while waiting for payday to come round! A:

how much of the bottom grille 3.5mm stuff do you have left? Although, am planning on fitting an A bar and i think this may hide the bottom grille anyway so might leave it for now.

cheers

but then as the self styled "King of bling" some has been used on other, less tasteful projects :D

...on second thoughts (with mrs's Fatboys guffaws echoing in the background) perhaps not! ;)
