Does anyone know, will the modern chrome door handles and window wipers fit on to a metro as they are a slightly different style..?

The handbrake is all one piece so hasnt got a screw-off end to add a more stylish end, so how do i go about changing the handbrake..?

And, does anyone know if there is such a thing as dash paint so i could paint my dash board red, if so, were from and how much..?

Thanks in advance for all help given

Handbrake-Mine didnt screw off,it had to be cut with a stanley blade and peeled away.May be similar with urs but see first??

Paint-Ive done my dash in normal paint for my car (ford mint green mmmm) Use plastic primer,then colour of ur choice,then laquer.Ideally take the dash off the car


Thats all i know mate

my handbrake is all one pice but its all black metal right down the the base, one big rod, so would i have to get the whole handbrake changed??

And I will take the dash off to paint it, but will any plastic primer do, and the colour of my choice, what type of paint is that??

try to get the right primer for the material ur dash is made of. normal car paint can go ontop of that.either in tin for a compressor or spraycan form.
Handbrake- cud u not fit the handbrake sleeves over the metal rod??? thats all aftermarket handbrakes are.Metal tubes

Not sure what u mean dude.Not sure at all.Most handbrake handles are just metal shafts about 2 inches in diameter and ALL aftermarket handles are just tubes that slide over ur shaft.U stick a gaitor on the back and put the button thru the hole at the front=sorted
