Re: Recommended Chromers

I used Marque Restore for spinners and Chromefix for motorcycle parts, both with excellent results. Chromefix posted so that also helped.

Re: Modern and fun

Mike, I fully approve! We are lucky enough to have a nice new company car that is the school run bus. I’ve had a Porsche 997 daily driver for 5 years that hasn’t depreciated and have just had the bosses approval for an upgrade to a 991 this year! :bigrin: I’ve also managed to quietly collect a few i...

Jaguar Paintings.

I always enjoyed art & design at school and college and went into automotive design as a profession. From time to time I tell myself I should pick up some brushes, get my a$$ into gear and do some painting again. Anyway, I promised a mate who had helped me with some bike paintwork as well as getting...

Re: Talking about temptations

Oh to be young, gorgeous and unaccountably wealthy, like those car advert, lifestyle people! Oh well, will just have to make do with middle aged, big nosed, not very pretty but getting by with a forever nearly finished E Type in the shed! It could always be a lot worse I suppose! Ferrari looks nice ...

Re: Gauge refurbishing.

Great stuff. Sounds like a top job. Mine were quite tatty but looked so much better afterwards. Not a difficult job and very rewarding. Just need to find time to do the speedo and tacho now.

Hi Darren
I used Simoniz Tough Paint in satin which goes on nicely and seems pretty durable. Ive also used the gloss for some bike bits.

Re: Gauge refurbishing.

As Tim says the bezels are pretty easy to twist and prise off. Mine looked like new after blowing out the dust, replacing the seals & lenses and painting the bezels. The old seals were hard and crumbly! Not always easy to completely avoid the fogging but it might be worth polishing the glass inside ...

Great stuff, many thanks Andrew, a handy tip as I try to improve my fit of centre console to floor console!

Re: Reeeeally tempted..

That Bathurst video is one of my YouTube favourites and a potentially powerful influence on such a decision!

Just do it, lifes too short!
If in doubt, watch the video again and turn up the volume higher! :bigrin:
