    Tonight whilst up in my shed sorting out some stuff for the biggest detailing job myself and Grant have landed i found my 2nd set of interior trim also in alloy i was thinking i might take a leaf out of Calvin's book and do something for next year's show's.. I'm also waiting for a little someting from the postman and yes it's for the engine bay area.I may stick up a little pic when it arrive's.. But then again i may sell it as it was a impulse buy.

    Naaa Chris will go big.. Crazypainter. I think you may only have a few choice's with the s/repeter's, paint them, use film or be lucky enough to find a good aftermarket set.

    Lol! Not saying anything - but it will all be good!!!

    I have actually seen some tinted and/or "smoked" repeaters on eBay which could be worth a punt for very little money - just make sure you get good enough bulbs to work with them though properly and keep your originals just incase you need them for the MOT.

    The yellow tints are a good idea but they do kinda remind me of Ali G's sun glasses or, even worse, Renaults!! But all depends on the colour of your car.....

    I'm going to lamin-x my headlights, and might put a bit on the side repeaters at the same time, although mine are quite smoked already.

    I'm not getting yellow though :no:

    Atlas Grey, maybe a bit pale to carry yellow headlamps. Just trying to formulate a direction at the moment!!
