id use contact cement, from memory pinnys had two colour options, brown and blue, but i could be wrong, i think ull have to just go wrecker shoping
And there's not much I can say
But we miss you every day
And I'm bitter 'cause it's unfair
We'll be drinkin' in the sun
Playing music having fun
Cause one day I'll see you there

Actually there's basicly 4 colour/types of Trim that could fit.


1. Brown originaly used in my GLI
2. Light Brown almost cream that was in the SK Skyline version ? it's a lux type Trim
3. The Black Silo Trim
4. Dark Blue trim featured in the GX & GXI although i hate the look of it.


Ive looked around a bit and found nothing yet, i am still looking but i think it would just as easy to redo the old trims with new stuff. If i can find a pair of trims (Any colour) in decent condition then i can always use vinal paint to get it close to the original but like i said im having real problems finding good trim.

i have re-done the whole interior in my corsair brown :( to black :D......the doors cost me $110 all up including grey valour and black vinyl but i get the valour and vinyl cheap coz i know ppl that sell it :d the

glue = $19.95 for 2 litres.
valour  and vinyl = round $25 meter
vinyl paint = $13 (VHT Vinyl Paint) to do the pockets and handles and stuff.

you need about half a meter per door so that 2 meters of valour and half a meter of vinyl for 2 doors so a meter of vinyl all up....

you need to know what you are doing or this could turn out bad....
i still have one more door to do so i might do a D.I.Y just to show how to do it :D look out for it in the next week or so

what did you do there?......no offence but that bright blue just doesn't go with the rest of the interior....

you need to have more blue so those top bits look more at home if you know what i am saying.....
