I do mine with trim detailer & silicone spray. It makes em look gloss without the hassle of stone chips. It's bad enough having the bumper sprayed every 3 months....

Very little, (pennies) but its a nasty job to do, I did a mates front grill on his AStra VXR once and it took best part of 45 minutes

Anyone know the part numbers for new plastics and the cost? I'm considering just ordering the cheapest one to see how it looks once sprayed.

That looks nice Sadret. Any special prep or paint used?

I do keep meaning to get started on mine but other mods seem more important.
