    Matching vinyl wrap to VX colour

    Forum Key Rings
    Hi, I'm thinking of wrapping the chrome strips on the radiator grille to match the body colour (Lava Red), and would be interested
    1 on what other forum members think of the idea, and
    2 where to source a good colour match vinyl
    Any ideas?

    dont think it would suit it the same colour but black may certainly make it look more aggressive

    take it to a local wrapper by you and see what they have in any wastage that looks a close match, you may find the odd piece big enough to cover them, they maybe throwing off-cuts away...

    Rethink on the grille vinyl wrap following the above comments, also seeing the 'exclusive' models VX are pushing out de-chrome the grille and front fog lights with black:

    So I've ordered some matt black vinyl wrap, will post pics when I've done it
