    I did the surrounds using black tape......

    The boot cill is the same paint as my wing mirrors and tail pipe surround - Plasti Kote Quick Dry Enamel in Satin Black. Just keyed the surface and sprayed........

    I'll probably do the same with the window surround if the tape doesn't last I just didn't want to go 'too permanent' if I didn't like it.

    So, what about the grille - will that follow too? Looks good (especially like the back).

    By the way, thanks for your PM about the wheels....excellent information there!!

    Why do you have Germany on you numberplate? Is it ironic considering your signature....

    The problem with common sense, is that its not that common.
