    Vehicle : Vectra 1.8 SRi

    Trim : SRi

    Engine : Z18XE

    Year : 2004

    Default Window strips?

    How easy are the black strips that run along the doors below the windows to get off? Would it be possible to colour code them rather than just change to the chrome ones, as I'm noit a massive fan of the chrome ones?

    really easy, just pop up either end.

    Not sure how easy they'd colour code tho. Isn't it slightly rubberised from memory? would the paint bind with it ok.

    Good luck tho if you try it.


    I wasn't a big fan of the chrome either, but now I've changed mine, i'm glad i did. Make a big difference

    They just pull off,if you've got a h/back the rear ones are integral with the window,changing the colour could be difficult as the are a type of rubber.

    i dont think you will be able to colour code them mate, they are rubber seals and if the paints sets on it as they are flexible wont this crack the paint?
