ka$h has some vinyl to go on but I don't think he's got round to it yet. I'm sure he'll get some pics up when he has though (you know how efficient he is!:lol:)

He's a good lad! :thumbs:

:D Hi, i couldn't get hold of the vinyl that you are speaking of so i just sprayed the b pillar and it worked out well.

if your not keen on that then just ask a panel shop to spray it for you.
my old corsa b with the b pillar sprayed. 8)

looks neat but im not too keen on gettin it sprayed tbh.....mines a 5 door so obv i ll need more than the b pillar trim that irmscher do.Im sure there was a white 5 door with it done and it looked grt with the tinted windows.As u can see in the pic it needs to come round to form a rounded shape at the top of the pillars.

ps if i was to have it sprayed should it be done in a matt..metallic or shiny black?

I have also the 5 door corsa c and i am keen to do the pillars but the car is still very new and i wouldn't like to [email protected] it up just yet.

i used the matt finish as it looks very similar to the vinyl and for me it presents its self as being factory sprayed.

but the choice is up to you what ever you fancy

same here.....how do i get the vinyl to stick or does it kinda fold around?
Just done a Shop and if the side/rear windows are gonna be tinted fairly dark (is there a maximum?) then maybe the pillars should be shiny black?..opinions plz

Only on the front side windows. 30% max I think (that INCLUDES the factory tint).

Plenty discussions on here about window tinting!

Yeah, MM you're right, I got the vinyl, but I aint got it on yet. as soon as I do, there will be pics. I am going for the gloss vinyl, but don't know how it will suit.

Guys, bear with me here. This is a mod to be done when I can fit it in so....

xjrjohn, as MM says 30% max tint allowed in front of the B-Pillar incl factory tint. Behind that go as dark as you like!

in regards to the tint i dont know what the U.K. law states but in South Africa we have a 35% on all windows anything darker and it must be removed but like all rules in life they are meant to be broken.

i have a titanium tint which is about 40% and almost mirror like. to prevent what we call ''smash and crab'' at traffic lights.

(then maybe the pillars should be shiny black?..) again up to you m8 try get a sample of matt and gloss and see what looks best.
cheers
