Any wrappers in the house ???


Recommended Posts

As some of you may know, I've recently added a Merc CL to the fleet, and I'm doing a few minor mods to get it looking how I want it.   The car is black and I want to colour code the grille but unsure whether to wrap it or paint it; I'd prefer to wrap it so it can be put back to OEM, but is that possible ?   I want to keep the chrome highlights on the circumference of the  roundel and the leading edge of the slats.

As it happens I had a Vauxhall Astra many years ago with a chrome grille and had that wrapped it worked well 👍 although the front is prone to stone chips which can puncture the wrap and the chrome shines through!

Try the plasti-dip option first and see how you get on, if that doesn't work let me know! Use a sprayers lining tape (usually blue and about 6mm thick) to get your shapes and edges sharp and ten mask over that to protect the rest of the car.

Thanks for the heads up chaps!
