Because my rear right door has been previously resprayed so I started on that one and as suspected when I lifted the corner it took the paint up with it...
So just waiting for the respray to take them off

yer my RH rear door i believe has had a clear coat respray there's a little step on clear around where the strip use to be but that's like one of the good things with the colour it's not really noticeable unless you get fairly close to it, but yer doors aren't tinniy at all.

i can't wait to get the cx7 either as soon as rego is paid and i get everything to do the 5 stud conversion they will be on i'll try and be really detailed and take heeps of photo's for anyone else looking to do the conversion,

what do use reakon keep them in allow or get them powder coated black??

i think i'll use that stuff you told me to use first for a couple of weeks after i get them on azz

probaby the only reason they put them on there to start with, and so nan doesn't wreack the paint work then she opens the door on another car at the mall or a fence

sprayed mine black, reckon looks better than normal alloy silver, also if you get them painted/powder coated you can take the M out of the centre cap, use a small flatbladed screwdriver gently and they should pop right out

Yeah but it's a wierd colour... And black and silver will both look good... But he just hasn't decided yet.

Hence why I suggested to buy a couple of cans of plasti dip.
Spray the rims to give an idea... If you don't like them black peel it off.
If you like it... Go get them powder coated.

It's the same though I had with mine.....
Was going black black black.... Which gives it that more aggressive stealth look...
But I just needed a Highlight as such... Making everything black takes away from eye catching things... So the silver rims brought that back! Hmmmmmmm
I has an idea...........
This up comming mod day... Do a rim swap session... You can put my rims on yours (just don't drive off with them) give you an idea of silver... And if someone is willing put some black 18's on Andrews car....
Actually... Do one side my rims and one side black rims and compare!
