Cabby GTi grille surround colour

Post

Back to the top
We are due to move house soon, so am resurrecting my partners Cabby from its slumber.  As part of this, along with new front suspension/wishbones, and power steering,  I will be doing some general titivating.  The grille surround is currently silver, however I understand that the GTis, in tin top anyway, have a red surround. What is the correct colour for the grille surround on a silver F plate Cabby GTi with factory body kit. (old picture from when we first got it in 2014)  IMAG0784.jpg body kit?

No colour on the edge of the grill even for a GTi.
The picture above is right apart from the GTi badge being 1 slat to high from how it came out of the factory.

If you’ve put a pre 88 grille on it you can edge it in red if that’s your thing.
It’s Mars No2 Red.

Pre 84 then yes GTI did come with red surround, grills changed after that and then didn't.
