    rear grab handle mod? anyone

    done this to illuminated ones,

    just had a go but when i offer the up there a big gab as the not lit ones are bigger.

    it on my 3dr mk4, there the right ones as had same on my old sxi which had em as standard?

    any suggestions on getting diff from anothe vaux, or blanking up the gap etc.

    cheers.

    as stated above, from what I've seen the grab handles are all the same size no matter if illuminated or not. maybe the ones you've got aren't what they were sold as? or maybe from Mk3? not 100% sure but about a year ago I looked into illuminating my grab handles front & rear and from what little info I found they are same in SXi?
    NOW - Sapphire Black 3dr Astra G

    THEN - Glacier White 2.0Di Estate - 136bhp 1.6 Pineapple Yellow Mk3 - Flame Red 2.0Di Van - Chianti Red 1.8 Coupe - Star Silver 2.2 Zafira - Flame Red 2.2 Linea Rossa Coupe - Titan Gold 1.8 Coupe

    I did this mod on my 1.8 sport. The wiring wasn't installed so I had to run wires from the feed in the passenger A pillar. I posted up pics when I did it...
