hey guys... every time i see a freshly painted vl (non calais) the front door moulds are intact and in schmick condition.. and as we all know, over time, they crack, and intact ones cant be pulled off cars without them snapping..

my question is, if you cant get genuine ones anymore, and there arent any aftermarket ones, where does everybody get perfect condition ones from?

or do they get them plastic welded or something??

i am painting my vl soon and replacing all the bumpers and moulds, but have no idea what to do about the front door ones..

any help will be much appreciated (also, if anyone has any intact ones for sale, let me know) :D

Umm.. yes they can, and its easy as. Using a flexible serated knife insert it behind the mould and proceed to saw along its length while bending the remainder of the blade away from the paintwork. Worked for me on 2 cars so far.

or do they get them plastic welded or something??
They can be plastic welded. I had a crack in one of mine welded up before they were smoothed.
