Re: should i or shouldnt i?

I voted no.
my experience in trade is that these moulds can be troublesome to colour code, due to the grime that they absorb.

Normally coded mould have a chrome insert, which is Fairmont+, yours is an XR6.
are you trying to hide?

Not sure about now, but if the the had coded moulds, when you bought newies they came pre-coded, except with a chrome insert.

at some point all black becomes too much, you need something to break it up, and the red stripe says XR6 not dolled up ricer!

Cheers
Jas

Leave em grey son!

or buy a full set of NEW ones and paint them. you could even have the chrome strip!

As for your bar moulds, new and run a THIN bead of bostick hot glue onto them, else they WILL peel off....mine did it four times before the bostick!

Cheers

I believe the moulds are still available. If not the pinstripe guys have a tape to make them any colour you want.

THe grey inserts on the bars, it does not seem to matter what colour you replace them with, but they don't stay on (aftermarket do however perform better than genuine) So when you change them, you peel the platic tape off the double sided tape, and use some hot glue to make them stay on.
Else you can fit them as provided and see how they stay on.
