Hmmm, you're talking about blacking out one of my favourite features on the Fairmont bumper, lol, not cool. When I have a blingy chrome grill I was wondering what it would look like to chrome that "splitter", as you call it.

Anywho, someone photoshop it asap for the man. : P

lol thanks till lind... yeah.. loking to see how it looks in a photo shop 1st as if it doest look right then atleast i have saved alot of hassle...

PS.. chroming it is another idea.. might be half looking like the BF fairmont ghia.. -with all the chrome bars in the grill.. :lol:

"Quote" till lind.... "Blacking out one of my favourite features"...

*funny that considering the colour of your mont i can hardly see your seeming as it blends in being a dark coloured car... :lol:

Iv been thinking of buying a second hand one of those and cutting it up, then fibre glassing it so it lookes like it was never there type thing. so the mounts are still there but they would be covered by end caps i suppose. i think it would look great.

not sure about the centred part but yes... is only box car wheel arch flexible chrome mould.. genuine chrome bumper moulds are not as long and do not go right into the corners like mine do.. :wink: mine stand out a lil more as its slightly wider..

nah, was a combination of evening shade and slightly milky lenses.. the chrome plastic shroud inside was painted black.. have since installed clearer lenses and replaced the painted shroud with the stock ones to once again have more chrome in the headlights and better for headlight projection.. :wink:

will take a quick pic.. b back in 5... :lol: :wink:

i did this to my ef fairmont, painted it chrome, it was a mod i regret doing. i got a new splitter from wreckers and am dying to get it back to normal but its a mother f@*kr to take off and even worse to put bak on.
yours looks much better, it really suits your car
