    Must have!

    Hi

    Does anybody know where I can any of these from? But in a different colour than black ie, chrome or brush silver.....

    I've marked in the pic below, in red...... (vent surrounds)




    Thanks

    Hi

    Just noticed in the How to do's "Removal of side heater and headlight switch" D"dave has either painted or replaced his vent surrounds!

    I dont want to replace the vents..

    They just get painted - don't think anyone supplies coloured ones.

    Top bits I had painted by a bodyshop for about £15

    They are painted in mirage silver if you want to swap as i want to go back to black

    Not a great picture:
