    Thats right Rob. The only thing I forgot to mention was you will have to remove the c pillar trims with the interior lights in, also I would try and order new clips as when I did mine, 3 out of 6 broke...

    How do you get the side pillars off? Just ease it off gently with a flat head screwdriver like you would the lights? And ok will be ordering some new clips on ebay

    Just gently prise them out. Start at the edge nearest the door window first...

    Any paint will do but try get a quality one, I used simoniz one (with the escort rs on the can) for mine

    But.. went to town today and fumbled into the pound shop and they're selling black/grey/white 300ml paint cans Maybe worth a try?

    I used satin black, didnt need to prime it. Just do loads of thin coats and the material will soak in the paint....
