heyo,

looks ace in black! makes it looks like a late model ED.

call me crazy but what if you went with matt or satin paint? (just like in your concept photo) that way it would be easier to touch up if it gets scratched or bumped. (these strips are there to protect the car after all)

and to help it stick, maybe try model paint from a hobby shop, its expensive but its designed to stick to plastic,.. but i dont know if its UV stable, so probly not worth finding out the hard way. (and i have to learn proper grammer and not use 2 "but"s in the same sentance. :oops: )

a real cheap and nasty method would b to use tyre black... :?

cya
Rene.
