Well after snapping one of my side bars off on a kerb the other day and seeing the worryingly short bolts the previous owner had used to hold them on, I thought I would take them both off and give them a little polish and refit with new longer bolts. Came up not too bad for just being done by hand ImageImage

Just stripped my caddy lights apart to paint them black

Heated gun worked a treat they came apart In no time at all.

Primer and then satin black.

@james400 they look great, did you have much trouble putting the door cards back together? I found it a complete nightmare

No pretty straightforward it was just working out how best to feed the light in so just drilled two small holes behind the trim and threaded it through more fiddly than anything tho
