before and after



well thought id have a go even though all the problems i have heard about sikaflex etc, but to my delight, all 4 strips came off with 80% of the sticky stuff, i had to spend about 30 seconds more rubbing with colour restorer just to remove the little bits of glue left, was really easy, im rather impressed with result oh and it was soooo quick, hardest part was buffing up afterwards because its sunny.

I'm keeping mine on because there are too many idiots with shopping trolleys/ push chairs in car parks And I'm kind of with Pinnin on this as well, the rubstrips help break up the side view and stops the car looking 'slabby'.

Much better, but you may regret it in the long run.

Re: before and after

tbh it looks better without the rubstrips, they clash with the skirts...
