Bought this RAV4.2 hard spare wheel cover off ebay for $170. Just got it back from the body shop today where it got colour coded to match my RAV for $150. Makes the arse end of the RAV4.1 look more modern, as most new 4WDs with a door mounted spare come with some sort of hard cover these days. Next step is to get all the grey and black bits on my RAV colour coded as well.

Very nice indeed. DOes anyone have a photo of a 4.1 with the cladding painted the same body color? I have a red RAV4 that is ready for a repaint and I was wondering how it would look like if it was all red? Thanks for your help :wink:

Wait, if you just paint all that grey area, will it look the same as the top half of your Rav4? I thought that if you painted it, it would still look all plastic-like and cheap. How much would this cost on average and would all decent body paint shops be able to do this?

At least AU$1500 to paint all bumpers, door cladding, fender flares, rear view mirrors, door handles, washer jets and rear spoiler. I can only afford it when i get my tax return in a few months time.

Oh wow, sorry...I thought that painted plastic would look bad when compared to the painted metal we have. That looks great! :lol:

I'm gunna do that after my soundproofing and engine mods (keeping an organized schedule)! Thanks for the info! :thumbs_up:
