OK, I'll swap you for a set of viper stripes, You must be getting the better deal. Think of all the cleaning I'll have to do to keep them shinning.

Do you see what I mean about your first photo at the Forth Rd Bridge, It looks black

If you are going to get it re-sprayed, Better getting RED, CLASS

You're obviously not looking hard enough if you can't find dib dabs.

Any idea what suspension you've got?

Lewis, are the alloys in the Forth Bridge photo the same as the ones in the later photos you posted? I was sure the 1st photo showed the same ones I have stored, not so sure now! I know you polished them, but the rim looks different...thicker in the 2nd set of photos.
