    Probably in the bodyshop or garage?

    When I took mine off to colour code them, I gave the doors and side a good clean, then stuck some tape right along the door and rear quater. Drove around for a couple of weeks like that while they were being sprayed. Looked well cool.

    How much did it cost to colour code the strips by the way ?

    mmm tricky because I had a pair of coupe skirts and other bits done at the same time. Its normally a bit cheaper if you can give the bodyshop more bits to spray at the same time, rather than giving them little bits to do. Cheaper also if you can present the parts nice and clean and partly prepped.

    Probably about £30 for the 4 strips at the time.
