I like the black bezels, go with the black bumpers.

Will be easy to put the original parts back so drive it like this for a while.

That was my thinking exactly Jaco.
The bus is pretty much white with some black accents.
You'll notice in the picture below that the bus used to have chrome windscreen wipers which I changed out for black a while back already.

I've still got a couple of small changes I'd like to make in the upcoming year when finds allow, but for now, it'll have to wait

Tony, the bottom one, but keep the chrome trim rings.. eg: Change ind lenses and black the air grill only.

I love that bus Tony! All the mods can be reversed in the blink of an eye and I must say, it looks like a completely different car.
You can never have enough Garages :-(

HOWDY TONY.

LOOKING REALLY NICE. HAVE YOU CONSIDERED THE BLACK MIRRORS. WILL FIT YOUR LOOK AND NOT LOOK OUT OF PLACE. ALSO CHANGES THE APPEARANCE BUT IN A GOOD WAY. YOU CAN GET THEM FROM CIP1 IN CALI.
I WOULDN'T CHANGE THE GRILL THOUGH. WE'VE DONE IT ON CYNDI'S BUS AND TO ME IT JUST LOOKS WRONG.

Yip, everything is fully reversable, all stock parts are stored and none are modified.

I've never wanted to do the grill in black, that does look dumb. The vent behind the grill is black.
I wont change the mirrors to black as they currently match the door handles and window trim. Changing the mirrors will need me to change the trim to match and I am not doing that

Looks good Tony,

Thats the look I am going for on my Bay as well but my one is not as "strait" as yours, my bus has Life blemish's, and not ready to take them out right now.

Nice

Enjoying a perfect day in Cape Town with the family, whilst driving an aircooled VW... Doesn't get much better than that!
