    IN TWO MIND'S

    I'm in two mind's with ragard's to my spare alloy interior trim's.
    1. Keep it and cover it with fadric like those have done in the USA
    2. Paint it a funky colour like Calvin's B5.
    3. stick it on ebay..

    Suggestion's please.

    I don't think I'd cover it or paint it myself. That trim is still 'reasonably' unusual, a lot of cars have the 'Piano' smooth type trim, so for owners with that the alloy trim would be a nice upgrade. If you were going to cover it then I'd cover the less desirable 'Piano' trims - paintwise then perhaps the finish would be better with the alloy? Seems a shame to lose a set of alloy trims.

    The alloy trim that is my is the smooth type. I was think this spare trim would look nice if i colour matched it to the same colour as my car and the added bonus of that criss cross effect will add a little something extra.
