Re: inside jaguar. xkss

then made a brass windscreen surround..when they should be aluminium
Yes I agree, funny they state they will "get a better finish on the brass" when plating, yet they were happy to apply chrome plating to the aluminium bumpers. :scratchheadyellow:

Take as many digital pictures as you can before item removal and strip down, these will become invaluable
