Re: Change of chrome strip colour.

Go and get some new chrome strips from Ford.
I know the side moulds wil be expensive but the bumper strips should be reasonable.

my bumper chrome is OK its the side mouldings which are a bit buggered. have got an almost complete set of some VGC replacement chrome mouldings but they arent colour coded so i cant put them on. will be going to bunnings or middy's to find myself some electrical tape. do they even make orange electrical tape???

Re: Change of chrome strip colour.

I reckon the orange looks alright.

Looking at it for a second time, reminds me a little of the Phantom/Orange GT Stripe Combo.
