    a good bodywork would take the plastic strips off, but them down so they are smooth then prime and spray them to match the car.. i'm looking to have the side door strips only done because im getting the m tech bodywork which is already colour coded.. ive been quoted £60 just for the door strips but that was mates rates!

    You need a good body shop

    I have my dash and interior all sprayed the same colour as the car and it looks good mate. It's amazing what GOOD sprayers can do and the results they can achieve

    definitely got to be GOOD cos theres a lot of cowboys around in the spraying industry!

    ive been assured that the strips can be done to a high quality finish without a problem!

    im thinking of having my dash fascia's sprayed same as outside of the car as the main interior colour is grey so think it'd go well!
