Hmm., if it was matt then I guess, unlike the pre-painted ones, it was primed & meant to be painted by a bodyshop prior to fitting :?: Let's see what Thursday brings :roll:
it was painted Julian just the same as the car colour machine grey. all this is down to the computer not recognising the afterthought of the special edition. in fairness to the dealer, they have only taken on the franchise in this garage in Horsham. it is a ford dealer at present and it's now a Mazda dealer. the ford part has now moved to Crawley

hi Julian
it went very well. they come in pairs only from japan, not like the machine grey from Taiwan in a single cover only. I can't tell you the cost as they just charged me £35 pounds plus vat for the single cover.

the car is very specific as it was a limited edition and the computer does not show up adds on's which these covers are apparently so you have to get the part number from japan.

That'll teach you for having a swanky Special Edition :lol:
