I think I've found some for the doors now. If that chap manages to get them off ok, will post an update tomorrow or Tuesday

Still looking


The chap couldn't get them off without bending them.


If anyone's gonna try, here is his advice: (hope he doesn't mine me quoting)

I reckon a wide plastic scraper/spatula thing, and preferably some heat to soften the glue. Definately not a screwdriver and no heat.... I'd also work from the top down, or bottom up, rather than from one edge to the other...

And if you want the red 'piping' that goes in the bumper, Vx main dealers sell it for not a lot of dosh iirc..... nice and spangly new and clean (and unstretched).

Would that be the same as the one that runs down the sides then? i.e. on the doors

Not sure, but if I had to guess I'd say no....

I woulda thought the door strips were one piece. The only reason I know about the bumper piping stuff is because I replaced it all in my old facelift Cav.
