    I'm pretty sure it's Foliatec that do it. Try Halfwits or Motor World. We used to sell it when I worked at MW. If you can, ask them to look in the Foliatec catalogue, it's like a novel, some pretty cool stuff in there. I'm sure you can look at it online too. Google Foliatec

    yeah esp on 3 doors you dont realise how big the strips are lol, the chrome strip on the back of mine was just under 1 metre.
