Payday today. Might treat the car to a few goodies. Also might have a set of front corsa coilovers for 35 quid. Need to check condition though.

quick pic of the micras I've owned. 2 more but they were standard

all sold, obviously red one my current, oh and black in micra heaven @warjiro

with the airgun just slowly run it back and forwards along the plastics, you can visible see it change in seconds. each bumper took no longer than 10 mins each. also done the door handles and the red strip on the rear lights. just make sure you don't hold it on the same spot for too long. id say even 5 seconds on the same spot too long and be careful for the paint because it can be damaged. but on a whole its simple and well worth the 20 mins youl spend doing it @Magpie42

Well, I'm waiting for Paul Smith to give me a price for delivery on some version 1 facelift ones...they're in red but I can't imagine it'd be too hard to spray them black...but it depends what he wants for postage. It might work out cheaper to find some at a local breakers or buy those reproduction brand new ones off eBay for £24 each...but I'm sceptical of their quality...
