I used caliper spray paint. Something to do with high temperatures paint

Tested to see if they work and what a surprise they do.

Now just have to wait a couple of weeks and I will get the top bit colour coded

It wasn’t a problem. I used a welder (Lister welder) to melt the plastic and it came of easy.
The hardest part for me will be putting the leather on especially on the arm rest.

How did you take the door card apart? Want to change mine to grey alcantara to match my Audi seats but is it easy??

No the back of the door cards you have these bits Image

You have to heat them up and gently pull it apart

Would a heat gun do it? Also how do you re attach? Thanks for the reply

I would of thought so.
I’m going to reattach it the same way. (I hope) heat it up and weld it together

Totally agree with you looks much better with your desired material and imo a complete nightmare to put back together yourself
