I've been thinkin about maybe pullin side plastics off and smoothing out the side panels, and filling over the front and rear bar trim that matchs the sides. anyone got any pic's of a early E series with like a Gun Metal colour. was thinking of doin that.

yeah yeah definitely gonna do handles an mirrors. would they come up the same as the panels though cos they're a werid type of plastic. will a gloss finish just do it?
