Icon5 R53 black side scuttles - 3rd April 2014, 12:33 AM

I have a r53 which has the standard Crome side scuttles. I've seen on some cars that people have black ones. Does anybody know where I can buy them, or does everyone take them off sand, primer and spray them?? Many thanks

you could just plastidip them, then if you dont like it, just peel it off.
its a simple enough job to do.
never seen them for sale in black (new i mean)

Wow they do sell them, bit too expensive for me, thank you for looking. What is the process involved in plastic dipping? Does a specialist need to do it??
