Ah, good to hear no sandning. Never liked that idea, lose the nice texture our trims have then.

why not cover it in black velour or something like that, with silver bits through it. Have a look at the BA XR trim if you dont know what i mean, sought of like silver scratch marks through the black to break it up a bit.

Yeah i like mrnasty's idea. Black with silver lining will look tops! I actually like you'r door all black zxodus. Maybe a little bit more silver will finish it off i reckon.

That looks really good! Velour in black would look hell good! Im doin a bit of black detailing in my car atm, and i was debating how much to do on the doors, becuase my carpet is grey, and the seats etc... its hard to imagine if it would look odd or not?! :|
