    i kept mine black but you can colour code them if you want, only prod then is if you've done handles and stripes then there is no break up in colour.

    Oh, if you go for yellow:
    make sure it's been sprayed from the same source, and matches or it will look shite !

    I tried spraying mine red to match the car, but not a good match and it looked crap.

    :P

    yeh true, I do intend on tking the strips off and colouring the handles...I just think if the plate is yellow it will look more like part of the mirror rather than just a fixing plate. I do take on board what you say about a break in colour though. It's a tuff one! :?

    Just diced the colour break isn't that important. The car on www.rjautomotive.co.uk is lush and it's pure yellow. Think I'll go with painting it. Thank you for your advice.
