Door Cards NEW QUESTION (DOOR HANDLES)

Post by Gary406 » Sat Jan 08, 2011 7:42 pm

been quoted £20 for each door card to be re-trimmed with black cloth upholster

is it worth throwing £80 at the doorcards

the guy said they will look a lot better and you wont tell they have been done :?

what do you think ?

They didn't even do the Exec ones in black anyway - all the D8 Execs I've seen with black leather still had grey dash & door cards.

they are held in with plastic blobs, i think done with a plastic welder, i want to take my rear grab handles out to spray with plastigrip to give it its original rubbery feel again.
But even the cheap crap ones are deer:

£50 and i thought about it, a soldering iron can probably do the same thing.

get a number plate which contains the number 135, 143, or 144 and you could ask well into the 4 figures for it.
