Well i've decide i'm going to try and restore my trim myself.
Anyone got any brief instructions and what type of paint i need?
This is what i know so far: i'm going to have to clean the trim, sand off the paint and existing marks, prime and coat with paint?
is that sounding right? what type of paint do i use and where can one purchase it from?
do it gloss black, V,nice, get the paint from halfords
Is there a name of the paint i need to get, just don't want to go in and get the wrong one! I have cloth grey seats btw.
Also are my steps correct?
20 pound set on ebay is steaming away at 60 plus postage at 20 quid right this second.
2 other options though. http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/BMW-E46-3-SERI...3%3A1|294%3A50
Saying nothing about this one though. Pick the right one it will probably look ok. pick the wrong one though.....................
that 2nd will never look o.k its the cheap chav option imo
I'm 100% going to refurbish the trim myself now, just need to decide on a colour. Currently leading towards gloss black, but anyone have any other suggestions?
Also Craig you got any pics of your trim in gloss black?
Kev, I'll be doing the same soon as I make a bezel for my screen - keep us updated on how you get on.
Craig - How many tins of paint/primer etc did you need to do the whole trim?
I was thinking about gloss black aswell but also like the look of the silver but it's one of those situations where it would be best to see it in the car to be able to make a decision (might have to have a play with paintshop)
