Description
I had to drive up North yesterday. It was cloudy, I only had my cell phone but since I was alone and could stop pretty much where ever I felt like it I snapped a few pics.

Regarding the trim on the doors... removing the rear is not an option because of the holes that it leaves when you do that. Here in my neck of the woods there are no donor cars to speak of so I have been searching for the trim for quite some time. There is a member who offered me a set for 80$ + shipping, but even though that is much less than the 200$ the dealer wants, I have a hard time with spending 100$+ on 2 plastic trim pieces.

Very short term plans are to find some front door trim at a reasonable price and have the bottom of the doors painted to cover the rock guard job I did.

Thanks! I have been looking for front door trim locally for about 1 year! There are no Vics in scrap yards and when there is one it is usually a service car with no trim on the doors, like most. I got very very lucky because the guy at the yard even said he had no trim, but I could go look anyhow. First P71 I saw had the trim and I was smiling from ear to ear while pulling it off! smile
