confused Colour coding

Okay colour coding needs to be done, white with grey just looks bad

so whats the best way,

a new, and better( bigger sportier) front end?
not sure about the rear bumper?
and whats the best way to get rid of the gray side strips
door handle conversion (do these come in standard colours?)

any thoughts, suggestions...

Keep the side stripe bumpers, I hate the look when they are removed or painted over.

I want to see someone put a BA-GT bodykit on an EA(B)(D)

The door handles can't be purchased colour coded from Ford. They cost $17.50 each. I bought 2 of them and paid $50 for a panel beater to paint them. By that stage I'd already tracked down 2 pre-coloured handles at a wrecker for $10 each.

I'm in the process of doing some mods to my side strips etc now, but I can't give away any details because it's an original idea.

i did my white ea falcon a few months ago!! you pull off the rubber door trim, wash em, prime them, spray them heaps, acrylic enamel them a few times, they will look good then!
Use Ford 'Stark White' from a car shop!
Stick them back on with liquid nails or sumthing similar, i tried double sided tape as that's what they were prigially stuck on with - it won't work a second time! p.s it's a reallllll bitch gettin the original tape f both the door and rubber trim!

i pulled off front bar and did the same!
same with rear!
it doesn't ook at alllll ddodgy! cost bout 50$$

I did mine myself aswell. Did the rear first with a few cans of paint :O While it doesnt look bad, its not as good as the front which i did at my brothers with his compressor and spray gun.
If its white tho u gotta be carefull that u paint in a dust free place.
I got real agro when i painted my side mirrors and a bit of grass somehow got on the clear coat >:/
