    its not easy
    the doors need stripping to get the crome from them frame out etc
    and if your not very careful the long pieces bend

    No is the short answer, like Bez says frames out then rivets to drill, side rails are riveted on then clipped behind quarter glass', couple of hours work !!

    thanks alot bois for the advice.. just last question.. how do i go with taking the main chrome trimming off? (is the last picture is rear window strip with the rivets or is that the doors?) has it got rivets goin around the top aswell or are there just cliped in to the front mirrors? and what is the best way to get access to the rivets? cheers bois means alot.. its just that am traveling 95 miles to Newcastle for it ..

    p.s mail me a offer on a standard front lower valance.. my mates doing a sline conversion soon.. well when he find some foglight grills for the sline bumper..

    After a bit more digging, tucked away in Elsawin I found the following which are for removing the chrome trim at the top of the doors, and for the underneath of the rear side window in the Avant.
