    Hi all,

    Recently bought this. Boring, I know, but its a good canvas! Only 40,000 and a real time-warp machine. it is in unbelievable condition.



    I am changing those awful front indicators soon and have lots of things on my to-do list for next spring (including some much needed 18" wheels.. those steelies are not not nice, but have great tires for winter!) but, I am stuck on one thing..

    I have seen a few saloons around this age (usually higher spec'ed ones) with a chrome surround around the doors. does any one know where to get these from and how much of a task it is too fit? I have seen a few red ones with these and it suits the colour well i think


    many thanks. and any cheap, easy, DIY mods appreciated

    Thanks mate, but I cant see how the door seals hide the screws, or a guide

    Theres some coupe guides but not one for a saloon.
