    Default Silver window linings?

    Not sure what they're called, but I see some models of Vectra have silver lining around the bottom of the windows. Is this something I can retro-fit or not?


    Cheers

    hi they are called weather strips and they are a direct replacement.
    are you can buy some chrome on a roll and stick some on.

    The ones on the doors are easy enough, the one on the rear-quarter light I believe is part of the window so the whole window needs to be taken out (I think). Someone correct me if I'm talking crap! lol

    hi the window ones just pull off but the rear quarters take a while to do as all of the boot trim and all you can see around the quaters has to be removed
    not to bad to do just takes a while
