ok thanks alot for that .. i shall be booking it in soon then. :-)

they also told me that they wernt sure if they wanted to do the side trim incase it flaked off

surely that wouldnt happen if it was primed properly ?

side trim should be fine if rub down and primed
quite a few people here have sprayed them. They look good
but whatch out for doors opening on them as it marks the paint easy
good luck with it dez ;)

Spary the mirrors yourself, paint and primer only costs a tenner.

Ok fair enough. about 90% of the job is in the prep work... Would probably be best to buy pre-primed parts from ford for best results if possible

I think the black trim etc looks good, breaks the car up a bit ....
Give the trim a good clean, i personally use Meguiars Trim Detailer and itl bring it up like new, would certianly be cheaper?

100 thats a rip off.............. those chrome ones ARE covers that replace the painted plastic bit but cant remember just where i saw them and i think they were around half the price that you just Quoted Helena
