    Can you colour code the standard lower trims on the doors ok?

    Im gettin a new front bonnet and lower s-line front bumper so want to colour code at the same time.

    Any tips or anything i need to tell the bodyshop?

    Thanks.

    Trying to find a set is hard enough, and i think i prefer the smoother look to be honest.

    The sills and door blades are made of the same material and the front and rear lowers, so I'm sure the bodyshop would know how to prepare them properly.

    I colour coded mine on my 3.0Q a few years back, never had any problems, it wasn't that expensive either.
