Well i have a 1995 e36... and i bought the car from florida so as u guys know its real hot out there... those plastic moulds can get really ugly (greyish like) is there any kind of spray or paint that can recover that?

2) the top cloth is starting to dangle down... is there some how i can fix it?

3) i have a m3 semi bucket seat, and as time goes it will wear and tear. Anyone know anyone who can replace the leathers? and do u think its worth it?

Many thanks, and HAPPY NEW YEAR!!!

1)just get some spray paint made for plastic(reg doesnt work)......pull those things off...put on a couple coats.....then just slap them back on


2)i would just redo the whole thing...take it down cut the material.....take the old off glue the new down..then put it up........BUT its not that easy

3)to get the seats redone it is costly......not worth it unless its really bad

you have to get paint that is made for plastic.......because it is more flexable...and it will stick

IF you try to use regular spray paint it will bubble when u put it on and chip away


Get bumper and trim paint from a local pepboys or some car shop place

and the door molds just pop off and can be snapped back on very easily.......mine were gray when i got my car but i painted them black 8)
