    now that looks sharp mate... was contemplating the whole colour coding a few months back. decided that i couldnt afford it at the time. good thing too as some bird almost wrote the side of my car off. might get that done.

    how was the trim preped and sprayed? also how much did that set u back?

    i run a powdercoating/wet spray company so did it myself plastic primer, primer filler base coat and laquer cost me £85 took me about 6 hours all in, first sanded the plastics down with 240 grit wet&dry to remove as mutch of the bobbles as i could, then plastic prime to allow the primer to adere, then a thick coat of primer filler, used this to get a good smooth finish, left overnight to dry, then 1200 grit wet&drye to get sooper smooth, good clean, base coat then laquer job done, i also did my rear bumper as it was badly scratched, also did the interiour strips, check out my pics
