    Strick it's really easy to remove the front spoiler, it's a couple of screws in the wheel wells and half a dozen scrivets, there are two hiding up under the number plate from memory.

    Thought I'd revive this topic than start a new one.

    Was there a difference in mesh between the VZ Clubsport and Senator (apart from the grille size).
    The Senator mesh seems to be black, whilst the Clubsport a dark grey? Or is my Clubsport mesh just faded now?

    Might be looking at painting mine - but what colour to paint?

    I'd be wary of anything painted, the tiniest hit from road debris and it chips off. Some mesh is powdercoated, better than painted but still chips, others are blackened and fade with exposure. Not sure what was original but I'd be leaning that way and then go with the options. My current mesh is a stamped type rather than extruded. It leaves all opening with sharp edging meaning all sticks and leaves and dead grass seem to grab so much easier and not fall back off or hose away, so look for one that has a more finished face to it. If painting to simply freshen up, I wouldn't go so thick it has too much coverage, hard to anyway, but think enough it can flex without damage.

    No dramas with my current other than a fade. Was hoping to freshen up, but what colour?
    Will look into it a little more... or just leave it. It's nothing major.

    Cheers for the advice!

    Powder coat it black or dark grey.
