    Default Chrome door trims.....

    First off I'm not sure if I've posted this in the right place so please move if necessary

    I've got chrome window trims on my 08 vectra but I don't like them is there any one in Bristol or the surrounding areas that might be interested in swapping all four door trims plus both rear 1/4 windows chromes for your black trims, your trims must be 100%

    Speaking to Mark at Autobrite today and he says he read somewhere that the rear quarter trims arent detachable and the whole glass unit has to be swapped. May be something to look into

    I'm aware that the rear 1/4's have to be completely removed but hey that's what being individual is all about

    You can remove the chrome strip from the rubber strip and have them painted or vinyl covered in black, and then put them back in.

    A friend of mine has just done this on his red Signum.

    I did think about this but was worried about damaging the trim, do you know how difficult it is removing and refitting them?

    Mrs Diet wants the chrome trims instead of our black ones.. I'd happily swap and im up in Bath in a few hours so just down the road

    EDIT :

    Thinking about the rear quaters i cant really change them as ive just had them tinted and will need to get them re-tinted.. So unfort i wont be able to swap just yet...
