Been doin some repairs in the looks dept of my baby and was thinking or re-instating the side door moulds.

Prob is, i really believe that i need to spray them black and insert chrome strip to look good, though that the grey looked tacky

prob 2 is that then the bumpers also need spraying, could be up for some $$$ including the chrome strips...

Pics of my car in the gallery, any opinions appreciated... and if anyone konws where to get chrome strips...!!

Spray the moulds with the same colour as your car, and I wouldn't really go for chrome stripes... you can have mine lol, plus the sprint didn't have chrome, it had like blue or something?

The bumper needs painting anyway.. nice ride by the way.

no matter what stripe, get bumpers and side moulbs body colour matched... would look nice.


Cheers

The sprints had black actually :) So they wouldnt show on a black car unless the strips were grey instead of black.

If you want my opinion, first thing you should do is change back the wheels, get the ones you had one before, you seem to have called them the "Nascar look' - I reckon the car looks hell tough with them!

But I agree, you need to paint the bumpers. I'd put the strips back on and have them painted the body colour and I'd do the silver lining. Expensive yes, but it'd look good!

Put the moulds back on, and paint them all black even over the black stripe!!

I have seen a few EB/D's around with it all painted body colour, and it looks really nice. I want to do that to my EB (if I ever get off my a**, and get rid of all the spiders that live in that car.)
