Hi all,

Finally got round to getting all the silver coloured external trim & roof bars repainted/powder coated gloss black to match the wheels.

The side wing vents, rear diffuser and roof bars were removed from the vehicle.  Not that difficult to do either.  The front bumper trim inserts however were a completely different kettle of monkeys.  The manual reckons the whole front bumper assy needs to be removed to get the trim off.  Not gonna do that so the front trim was sprayed in-situ.

The black rubber roof trim was also removed for a proper clean.  Wish I'd took photos cos the cr*p/dirt/algae/green yukky stuff that was in the channel under the rubber trim was just disgusting.  Not now though, the channel has been thoroughly cleaned/polished and rubber trim refitted with new double-sided tape.

I'm happy enough to keep the chrome trim, I just felt the silver parts didn't quite look right.

Definitely very happy with the result.  Hope most of you agree.

I like the black, sets off nicely against the white

Looks really good, like the black against the white makes it stand out more, 
where did you get the rear bumper protector from?

Hi Levz65,

The bumper protector was purchased from a seller on a well-known online auction site.  Following quite a bit of research with online retailers, I chose that option because the delivery charges were a lot less than the online retailers.

If you search for the following it'll come up.  Priced at £44.09 with £6.50 postage.
