Royal Mail have kindly held them for the past 2 weeks whilst they sent me a letter to say I need to pay duty. Letter came today.

I'll pick them up on Monday and post them straight over to you guys. I'll drop you a pm tonight to get your details.

If anyone else wants a set for the holidays, can you drop me a note this weekend as I'll be in Dubai from the 22nd for a week.

Ok. One set left at 911uk pricing. Otherwise they're all going on eBay at a marked up price.

Lol - I thought we'd established earlier on in the thread that it was filmed at your house! Laughing

Another set booked to go tomorrow.

Wildej, if you want yours to go out before I go away for a week, you need to get your 'Harris' in gear. Laughing

Received safely today. Got one on but ran out of natural daylight, not smart as you really need to see what you're doing and also not feel under time pressure and be patient! It seemed to be turning into a disaster, but it's quite forgiving while the surround gradually becomes stickier as it dries, so just keep working with it Thumb

Mike - did you do it with the headlight in situ, or did you remove the unit first?

in situ, the little instruction leaflet actually says no need to remove light. When I see it tomorrow I'll have a better idea how well it's gone, don't think I will have achieved perfection, but I was pleased with what I could see in my pokey garage with poor lighting.

I'm sure it will be fine. It's hardly rocket science.

I'll do mine next weekend when I get back from vacation I think.

I'm thinking I would like to swap the clear chip guards on the rear hips with black ones, although I do worry that it may be gilding the Lilly.

Yeah, they are nice, but know what you mean, think I'll stop with the black accents for now, although the bottom section of the wing mirrors would look good in black.

Yep, got it done. Learnt that it works better in a warmer environment than yesterday morning, using a hair dryer helped, the vinyl was more compliant and willing to stick

Looks good Michael. Thumb

I think the black accents on the front number plate are OTT though. Wink

Must admit they look pretty good on a silver car.
