I have some mesh, but removing the GSI grille leaves part of the circle from the vauxhall bage on the gsi bumper.

Not sure if I should mesh and fill in, or is there an aftermarket grille that looks better than the bog standard gsi. I have considered keeping the vauxhall badge part and mounting it in front of the mesh.

Any ideas? And does anyone have pics of a meshed gsi, or a gsi with a different grille?

Thanks in adv.

youd have to fibre glass the rough shape first then filler that to get the perfect shape,where the filler meets directly with the plastic you'll have to coat it with something it can stick to toherwise itll crack after a while or you maybe able to get it plastic welded?
