Does anyone know if the dash trim/strips were ever made in rado silver?
If so, any hints on part number or what model/s they were used on?
After 10 years I’m not likin’ the look of the micro silver.

Thanks but nah.
Paint never holds up as well as well as an orig finish.
Also want them to match steering wheel & other trim properly.
Hydrodipped?

I just retrimmed mine in suede. The photo doesn’t do them justice. They were a cheesy dark silver.

The VE2 Calais V trims look ok.
The VE1 Calais V trims have an aluminium dimpled finish. Looks good.
