Redwood was never an option.
I would have the origninal trims wrapped.

Yours is the only Diablo I've seen with Chesnut leather and it was bloody sexy. Even in the dark :oops:

According to Servicebox, one of the front door trims is £34. Think £120 is a bit steep for 4 bits of plastic. I'll send a message to the guy that bought them from me to see if he wants to sell the door cards. If he does & you're up for it, we could always do a swap for your Rapier doorcards? That way you also wouldn't have to faff about removing the trims from the doors. Would also make my life easier to sell my car as I won't have to keep explaining why the door lights don't work!

For anybody interested, it could be going on Ebay within the next few weeks to be replaced by a cheapie to recoup some of the substantial amount of money which will be heading over to Eire within the next 2 weeks.

I was going to do the same thing one day on this panels,but in some grey color,like in coupes.
wrapping them is a good idea,its cheap and easy to take off.
other way is to go to some scrap yard,take other ones and repaint it.
but i think the wraping is a good idea,many colors to choose from.

My rapier door cards aint great. So the SRi door cards have lights too? If they don't then couldn't you use them yourself?

SRi ones have the lights too. Academic anyway as he got back to me tonight to let me know that he's already passed them on, but on the plus side he may be interested in my Hoggar wheels. Rapier door cards don't seem to hold up too well - the ones I got from Omega were ok, but the drivers one was a bit worn out, hence my not already having them fitted.

I've noticed that things never seem to sell on here. As far as the coupe club goes, non-coupe owners tend to get shunned a bit. Reckon you'd get a sensible price if you stuck them on Ebay mate.

My Ebay sale may not be happening now - one of the security guards had a good look round the car last night & one of the lads said he had looked at a £2.5k one at the weekend that he reckoned was nowhere near as clean as mine is (but newer).

Managed to get some pics of the blue wood, but it was impossible to get a good close up shot to show the wood grain effect in it:

That was as good as it got & even that doesn't really give the full effect.

Think I'm going to get some Vynil and do some wrapping though. Dunno what to go for though. :roll:

Carbon looks fake.
Love redwood but wouldn't suit my car.
Black Marble? :roll:
Light blue wrap like I painted my last 406?

Help meeee :lol:
