So the chrome door handles are the stick on 3M tape kinda as with the door sills, are they ok, I was a bit worried about the quality, and once stuck on if they start to come off may kill the original paintwork ? Easy to install ?

I was looking on Ebay at the large boot sill plate !!! Would look good and also protect the bumper near the boot from paintwork damage getting items in and out of the boot.

:cool:

Yes, they are the stick on ones. They wont come off if the surface is cleaned properly. I used metho on a clean cloth, applied some pressure when putting them on and they haven't moved. Have had most of the chrome stuff on there for 6 months or more and it gets driven every day, with no signs of lifting.

I also have a new grille and top eye lids for the car, and will go on when I have finnished modifying them and painted them.

PS I do all of this at home in my garrage on my spare weekends when I'm not at work.

Really lovely stuff! Quite tempted to take a look at what I would do first to my new Cruze (arriving tomorrow :D). Any suggestions on what might take higher priority while upgrading the exterior / interior of the car??

Thommo10
11-04-2010, 11:58 PM
Exterior - Alloy Wheels, Spoiler (if you like them), mudflaps (mine go on this weekend) and I want some chrome door handles.

Storm

Given the 'fully loaded' version I just got I have the chrome door handles and the mudflaps already! :) I've opened a thread regarding whether or not to buy a spoiler in another section - shud be easy to find if you have any specific opinion on this :)

How about the interior of the car??

178Just a quick shot of the new grille on the car. I have some time off, so I am trial fitting and modifying the grille to get it to fit properly. Still needs final paint, mesh and custom touches added. Will show the final result when done. (Need some good weather first)

OK !!! Even less happy now..

Hit the scratch with the polish and buffer at the detailers and BAM, went straight through to the undercoat past the metallic blue colour, now have a ugly white patch on the side of the car. Off to the holden dealer to complain I went. Detailer said they have never seen paint so thin and weak in their life.........

Holden service girl said could be what the detailer used, but thats BS...... so will get a letter off the detailer and take it into holden and they can take pictures and send it to their head office........... am gonna make them pay for it no matter what !!

Anyone else had this issue before ? I think the US version has gone through a much bigger paintjob then the ones made in Korea....... by looking at the Cruze Video's that have been posted......

When my car arrived on the truck, my front left guard apparrently was coverd in scratches. It was sent to the detailer and was buffed out. Mine turnd out fine, wouldn't have known it was scratched at all. Don't let them get away with it Thommo!!

Damn... Yeah I would definitely talk to holden about that.

Cruzes made in North America have to be made at a premium quality or else GM knows their reputation will be thrown into a pit and burnt alive as they did with the Cavaliers and the Cobalt's flaws.

I hope you get it fixed one way or another without having to dip into your own pocket... let us know how it goes!!

OK, took it in, Holden played the blame game and said the Detailers went about repaiing the scratch all wrong..... said they should have painted the scratch, let it set then buff off...... but then I said what about where the buffer has just gone straight to undercoat !!! So they took pictures, and emailed then to holden head office and will see what happens from there......... OH well...... have to wait with it looking like crap.... that my issue. :mad:

So far for my 2010 CRUZE I have the following installed:

Weathertech floor liners
vent visors
Air Deflectors



Exterior - Alloy Wheels, Spoiler (if you like them), mudflaps (mine go on this weekend) and I want some chrome door handles.


Awesome, alloy wheels I have been looking for, yet cannot find one. I do hope they come in Powder Black Coat or Black Chrome.



Given the 'fully loaded' version I just got from auto parts (http://www.partstrain.com) have the chrome door handles and the mudflaps already! I've opened a thread regarding whether or not to buy a spoiler in another section -

I would also want those mud flaps. It can get really muddy when the downpour hits the Pacific coast.

It pays off after the hard work of fitting and modifying the grille to get it to fit nicely. Have you considered installing a grille guard (http://www.car-stuff.com/brushguard.htm) / bush guard? Of course, it needs to also fit the grilles in order to look good. In case you have decided to install one, kindly show us some photos as well. Anyway, keep up the great work mate.

I can't hold out to see more of your pics! Also, any mods you do, don't ignore even to make How-To's so you can display other Cruzers how you did it.
