    Well last weekend after the awesome RR day my side molding decided to fall off. ordered a new one at the expense off £70!!! but turned up a completely different color due to weathering etc and looked completely out of place therefore decided to spray the lot satin black like I've wanted too.

    Heres the results...

    You talking about the bottom door strip or the middle one?

    I can't really tell looking at the pictures. If it's the bottom strip, I thought they were satin plastic anyway?

    I thought the grey was primer, then you have to get them painted.

    Anyway, you did a good job.

    The lower sill trim stuck onto the bottom of the doors are listed as primered which you have to get sprayed, I was telling the parts guy that it's just plastic, and grey plastic coloured as such. I bolted my new one one straight from the box, and the colour matches the back one.

    Totally unrelated, and without reading this thread, I painted my lower parts (on the car!) satin black too!!

    Did it at the weekend as my front lower valance looked really grubby due to it being chopped up for FMIC fitment.

    Then I decided to do the back and sides too.

    Goes nice with my black wheels.

    Shame my car isnt black, its volcano black, which in the real world mean "dark grey"
