Pd silver grille surround to black

I think my grille surround looks better in black, used 35mm insulation tape, easy job.

Looks good, but won't it peel in the heat?

Wont insulation tape come off?

You need the black Hyundai logo cover now - not sure they are available there though.

Plasti Dip spray would work well without requiring the front to be removed, tape off a cm from the outside of the surround and when dry any excess will peel away leaving a nice clean line at the join :)

Plus 1 for Plastidip, and you can simply peel it off if you don't like it  :goodjob2:
