Does anyone know if the handle cap on the rear doors is the same as the de-lock caps for the front? Got a chance to get some rear handle caps in the right colour so thinking this could save me cocking up the spraying.

Thanks,

Geoff

its not just the caps you need to stop the thievin little shats using a screw driver to open baby up. you need to little blankin plate.

if you want it just for looks can u not just get the rear caps and size them up? i cant see no reason why they would not fit.

Yea I've got the whole kit but rather than spray the caps I've got I was thinking of getting the right colour ones from the rear from a car being broken locally. I can get them and see just wanted to see if anyone knew for sure before I took the things apart [:cool:]

I want to do this too. Have ordered the delock kit but I am rubbish at spraying so trying to find a car being broken in the same colour.

as regards to spraying fellas dont be scared of it. especially something so small. A nice rub down so its smooth, couple coats of primer, and 3 or 4 coats of paint. you could have them done in half a day, just make sure its dry before you spray again. let it harden over night in a warm place and lacquer the day after.

take your time and apply thin equal layered coats. give it a try you mite get hooked! [Y]

I have tried and made a mess a few times! I think I put too much paint on and dont leave long enough between coats. Plus at the moment I don't really have anywhere warm to paint.
