    Should i shouldnt i?

    Been talking to my mate, and he reckons he as a quiet week next week in his bodyshop.

    So i kinda might get my car resprayed(unless he gets work booked in!)

    Im gonna keep the same colour but get the stone chips and key marks done. etc etc

    But at the same time have had a thought about getting the rear door handles smoothed out.

    Should be getting the windows tinted next week too.


    Basically want 2 questions answered.


    Should i lose the door handles on the rear?

    Should i paint the roof black?

    cheers

    hi mate, if it was my car id keep the rear handles, do the roof black and smooth out the rear boot lid handle removing the button. in my opinion a 5 door just doesnt look right without rear handles!

    I agree with Mr Mini here. I dont see why people smooth out rear door handles, other than to completely boggle potential rear seat passengers.

    I like the black roof and respray idea though - I wish I had a mate in that trade. My car would be in the shop all the time!

    Well booked in for Tuesday now, door handles are just getting colour coded I stead of removed.

    Getting both sides and the frot done so hopefully no more scratches


    Cheers guys
