    Black side trim

    Hi..

    Anyways, I drive a silver 1.6 sport, the problem with having a silver car is the trim running around the side of the doors is black and looks c***. Whats the best way to remove this, and also once its removed does it have to be replaced (ie with a silver one to match the car) or can it be left looking ok, once removed.

    Any help or ideas would be grateful, thanks.

    Are they just pill off then stick on then?
    Im really poor when it comes to all this modding but want to get it all done. Do you have a URL of an online store that sells them?

    Right, there are clips all along the strips, with the centre clip being bolted in. So just taking the strip off, leaves holes.



    Found this for part numbers:

    Cheers mate.

    Thats very helpfully. Hopefully should have most of the car ship shape before the end of month. That was the one little thing that was bothering me.
