    I would have thought you would have to get new ones!

    Surely it wont look any better with plain looking handles etc.

    Maybe another mod/style change will breakup the *boring* look of the car??

    Best of luck with whatever you decide...

    i think it looks good all colour coded imo but why not just spray your strips instead of buying new ones?

    give them a good sand, as they have already been sprayed all you need to do is prime then top coat
