Yes its the zunsport grill, I asked them to supply one without badge, they were reluctant at first then wanted to charge me a big premium but we got there in the end. Had to wait 4 weeks for it though.

I spoke to them a while back about the same thing but in black, think they wanted a tenner more for the privilege of removing the branding. Don't see why the badge needs to be so big or ugly.
It looks good though, I'm sure ive seen someone mask the grill and spray the mesh black but leaving a 30mm silver border rather than spraying it all.

That's exactly what l'm thinking... spray it black but leave the edging strip silver, think it will work well

Looks good Alan - your plan to spray the internal mesh black sounds like a good idea as it would match the OE kidney grills. :)

That's settled it then.. this winters project (will be having too much fun before) is to take the grill off and paint it black leaving the outer rim silver.. thanks for debating that guys!! :)
