    Only fairly new so be kind if I'm wrong.

    The below is a link to one in the classified that looks good, don't know if it'll fit your year but worth a mention.

    Also looking at this one myself. Are they OK to use as they are without the need to paint or gloss ie not just "primed"?

    Thanks.

    They are probably ok to go on as they come mate just not sure if the plastic is as black as the paint would be so gonna compare when I get time and deside , they are just bare grp no primer on them so upto you really

    Hi mate. This looks good and for the price, be rude not to purchase as always wanted to do this wee mod. How long did it take to fit? Cheers, slax.
