    Looks awesome mate. Love the way that water glides off the paintwork. Looks like they do good work with great products.

    Are you going to be replacing the badge with another one, or gonna leave it blank?

    Either way, looks absolutely mint. Makes me want one now.......

    I am leaving it blank for now. the honey comb badge is an insert that i bought and i had to modify the standard grill to fit it. no badges on it as i am sticking to a badgeless theme and going with a certain look.

    i do have a spare grill that i am gonna try and modify to be a full honey comb mesh without that badge centre thing. unfortunately getting one done from scratch in plastic places wanted $25K for a mould to be made up and well.....i dont think i could ever make $25K worth of profit of selling a badgeless grill to justify the outlay

    it gave the front end that extra little bit of rigid i needed at the track.

    for a car that never sees the track there is no real benifit apart from looks

    What products do they use to get the water to repel like that? Looks amazing.

    A mate has had his car (SSV) done up by the boys at Autotechnique (VCM) and although it's not listed on their website, they do have an OTR for VE.
    My mate had his done back in November, and it looks like a much bigger OTR than you currently have, I should have a got a pic today, but will try on Wednesday.
    Also, the OTR from VCM has a big scoop behind the grille, the scoop is the length of the grille and is almost as deep as the grille.

    I too have wanted to do something with my grill....so good I can see what it looks like without the chrome badge...was it hard to remove...not that it looks hard but I guess my question should be can it be easily put back on once removed? How are they initially fixed, small gap on one side of mine.
    Im thinking of taking off the bagde and giving it a few coats of matt black, then replacing.

    Edit* Never mind found the relevant thread

    Every time i check this thread it just gets better and better.

    The best SSV on the forums by a long way.

    Very nice, keep those updates coming.

    Mike.

    i have absolutely no idea what products he used
    the compound he used with the mechanical buffer didnt have any labels on them
    the wax was Swisswax. cant remember the name but when i last looked goes for $300+ for a tub i think.
    then finished it off with a new product to enhance the shine that is a spray on wipe off (sort of a quick detailer but better) called "Spray Magic" i think...can check the bottle at home as i bought one off him.
    he has been doing my car since new so its always had the best treatment and i use the best products to ensure it needs very little work by him on its annual treatment
    if u can get a pic that would be great. even measurements of the filter as from when i bought my filter you couldnt buy it in AUS i had to bring it straight from the USA and its a whole lot bigger than the other OTRs for VT-VE apart from the Russo one that is more of a rectangle filter like whats in the box not the panel ones like normal OTRs

    we are also developing a scoop for it that sits infront of the radiator to catch the air coming from the grill that will be the width and depth of the grill. we ran out of time as he has alot of jobs to do for Motorvation which is this weekend coming.
    which thread did u find?
    Thanks Mike much appreciated :D

    for a start its ALOT easier than on those links

    FIRST of all you DONT have to remove the front bumper on a VE.
    u undo 2clips and 2 bolts as shown here
    [​IMG]

    once u do that u can bend the grill towards you a little (away from the car) and there are 3 or 4 clips like this
    [​IMG]
    just need to be careful unclipping these which can be hard coz they are in tight as they clip in sideways. it makes sense when u see them out as these anchor on the front bumper and with the top 2 bolts and clips they lift the front bumper up

    once the grill is off the holden badge has about 4 or 5 clip tabs...pull these outwards and the badge pops off and u can paint it
