Yeah that would be why mate.

I didnt even think about doing it your way, makes sense in hindsight but at the time we were just getting stressed, tired and hungry (I guess I missed my afternoon nap time )

Anyway just another Quick Update

Old shoddy Bravo handles removed:



New Marea handles sprayed in satin black and fitted - Handles supplied by Skate2Create and painted by Whiley:




I really like the satin black, I originally wanted them colour coded but I think the satin black leaves them looking subtle and standard/modified - Which is the look that Im trying to go for.

Also just a few random pics of the car seeing as I havent posted any new ones for a little while:






Thats all for the time being

Next plans are exhaust system and induction kit so watch this space

Re: Si - Punto's Bravo HGT

handles look good mate Would have gone for gloss black myself but each to there own Careful though as with them not being lacquered you might notice chips and generaly ware sooner than you think

Re: Si - Punto's Bravo HGT

Cheers Guys

Chris, I did think the same thing about chipping but Im just hoping that they dont. But hey if they do they do, I'll just have to get them done again.

At the end of the day Gaz did me a favour spraying them so I left the choice of colour and finish up to him.

Only time will tell...
