DE-CHROMING MKV THRED

EDIT: I started this thread well over a year ago for jetta owners to show how they got rid of the chrome,well it seemed to catch on and now there are all various grill swaps and such...
So if you have a GTI with some chrome,post it..gt front end or even a rabbit swap..post them up http://****************.com/smile/emthup.gif

This is the Eurogrille, inserts painted flat black to match the lower part of the front end.

Re: (nastybags)

The guy is a friend so it was my pleasure to sell to him! He got the paint, the blow off valve, the 17" winter tires and only 1000km! But I asked him to pay for the chip!
He didn't mind once I gave him a test drive!
So I'm stuck with the 1.8T for now which is still for sale but the girlfriend is enjoying it so..... anyway, I got all the parts orderd for the GTI!!!!
NS RS10 19" in black
NS rear sway bar
NS CAI
Chip (of course!)
Forge blow off valve
Not sure on the suspension but so far the NS coilovers sound good
I really can't wait to get it!!!!

I like the black, gives it a more aggressive look. I had the stock painted black which didn't go over too well, so I went with the easier to paint aftermarket grille.

How do I go about actually de-chroming or painting? I remember reading a post a while back of some guy just trying to paint over the chrome and it turned out to be a bad idea as the paint began to chip off after a trip on the highway.

Re: (path2live)

valenta painted over his chrome(and a good job at that http://****************.com/smile/emthup.gif )but mine at the top,and apos22,those are the eurogrills,two places u can get them,eurogearusa.com or even one of our forum sponcers,na motorsports has it as well,i painted mine black,apos22 painted his white to match the car.3 perfect but different exambles of what to do,if you do not want chrome.the cool thing about the eurogrill is its a fiberglass mold,so like any aftermarket grill,you can paint it any color u want. http://****************.com/smile/emthup.gif i hope we can keep this post going for a while and get as many pics and ideas as possible

This is such a good thread, I plan to eventually do this to my 2.5 I think one of the mods should almost sticky this thread somewhere.

Added to "Exterior" section of FAQ.
