    Default Signum Elite Trim

    I'm looking at changing the trim (see pics) on my Signum Elite. I think the trim that is in it is known as tortoise shell (not impressed personally) so would like to change it to a chrome effect look. Am i right in thinking the chrome effect look is in the Signum Design? How do the trims come off does anyone know? They look as thogh they just clip in but i'm not sure? Basically big job or not fellas AND does anyone have any kicking around they don't want please or does anyone know where i can get them from...apart from the stealers?!?! Thanks.

    The dash ones just unclip, the door card ones don't. They have plastic lugs on them that push through holes in the cards and are melted/flattened to hold them in - kinda like rivets.

    So to change them is possible, but not just a case of unclipping them. As the door trims aren't sold separately you'd need to find an old set of door cards to get the trims off.

    The trim on the door's can be swapped Glenboy did his and put a thread up about it. Or you can change the whole door cards. The two on the dash they just clip off.
    You can get the dash trim's off ebay or the dealer.
    I know a man with a set of door cards with a silver strip from a facelift signum.

    No problem Stef.

    BTW the trim in your facelift is not tortoise shell it's more like a bluey/grey dotted/broken line effect. It's the same trim that the facelift veccy design has.
    I quite like it.

    The real "i say real" tortoise shell/wood look was in the pre facelift.
