Grill Chrome

Hey K'rs

I did a li'l chrome trim on the grill. I liked the single strip but I think I prefer the 3 strips. I'll probably paint the grill black at some point.Let me know what you think. Oh, and check out my lurcher in the middle pic- aint she class!

Cheers. Grill needs to be black... The stick on strip is a doddle.. cheap too. I'll leave it as is for a while then when I paint the grill I think I might use slighly thicker strip. thats 0.75 cm on it now, there is a 1.25 cm which I think will look better.

Cheers- I did'nt notice she was in the pic till I posted it- she looks like she's eyeing up a squirrel or a rabbit.She goes into hyperspeed chasing them- really something to see.

Hi JustinJoyit
Where did you source the strips? Ive been trying to get some off the net from Germany (Chromline) but the websites weird, lets you order but does not ask for payment and they dont respond to emails.
