    na no screwdrivers they are on metal pins no clips so just pull, i removed all the old suff off with gunwash (thinners) but be carfull as it attacs the plastic then sanded them with 240 grit paper, plastic primed them (etch) grey primered them base coat then laquer, all done out of a spray gun not from cans hope this helps

    Mines just plastic trim so i wouldnt need the thinners would i?

    The spray gun make a big difference?

    Ive been quoted 60 pound fo all my interior bits to be vinyled.. you reckon that would be a cheaper fix and probably last longer?

    vinyle is cool as long as its done propaly what ya thinking carbon or black? i think carbon would look cool as for long lasting the paint i used is the same as on ya car body so should last forever

    That interior spray is again a top job mate, liking the thick shiney finish there!

    Bigben the trims come out real easy, I change mine on an almost weekly basis lol

    Yeah the black dot ones are quite smart looking, they work well.

    If youve got those standard rubbery finishers Id personally try to spray them myself... whats the worst you could do? They start peeling after a while anyway!

    Alternatively you could just peel the rubber off and it comes out glossy black! But is a sort of cheap thin plasticy cheap feel...

    That interior finish looks top nitch - I did mine last summer and was really pleased with the results - but that really makes mine look like an amateur job!

    I found the silver really lifted the interior - mine was grey before and a pretty dull place to be (it was also really scratched). I removed the vinyl the hard way - basically sanded and picked it off! It didn't take as long as I thought it would.

    The bumper trim etc looks good as well.
