    Dunno if this helps,

    i have a white 5 dr

    I colour coded most of it myself apart from the sideskirts and bumpers, which i wish i did do myself the mess i got them back in.

    cheers, tried my best with a few mistakes to prove it.

    There is a how-to in the technical guides.

    I believe its in the mk4 section > exterior > "Paint Plastic Trim"

    Worked a treat and i definately suggest taking your time with it all. I learnt the hard way of rushing things.

    I purchased paint from halfords to the colour of the rest of the car as well as there white plastic primer.

    My paint code is 10l Glacier White.

    Good Luck
