Chasing some chrome door surrounds for my VR, anyone wrecking a berlina, statesman, calais ect, or know anyone that is selling some?
Alternatively anywhere else that i can buy some from?
Plus they seem pretty easy to fit, screw out the current rubber/plastic ones, screw in the chrome strips, is this correct?
Cheers.

The chrome stip is part of the whole door mould so you would need the whole piece (or actually 3 pieces, front quarter panel, front door and rear door). It's pretty unusual to get second hand ones because in the process of removing them they get damaged or bend and look crap. The moulds are just glued on with a polyurethane, no screws.
Best place to try get them would be holden genuine parts, they are exy from there but they will look the goods brand new.

Thanks for that mate but i think we're talking about two different things.
I'm talking about the chrome strips that go around the doors, just above the windows. I may be wrong but i thought they were called the door moulds?

Chrome Window Surrounds i believe is what you are looking for.
And as far as i am aware they are reasonably hard to come by.

Oh yeah? I would have thought they'd all be long gone.
Ill give them a shot this weekend, thanks mate.
Out of interest, do you remember how much they charged you for it all?
