    have you got a 3 or 5 door mate? that will change how you remove them first of all. anyway you will need to rub them down. i used a coarse then a fine sanding block and then an emery cloth to get them smooth. It may also be a good idea to give them a wash with hot soapy water before hand. once they are rubbed down, lay a couple coats of primer on them. maybe give the, a rub between coats to keep them smooth. then 2 coats of paint and then laquer! ET VOILA!
