Looks good Simon. :D

You can probably take the existing caps off, fibreglass the lion relief out then after a paint & polish put them back on as plain caps. 8)

That's one very nice looking BX.

IMHO the wheels do set it off.

They're different but they do complete it.

Normally i'm a purist and that would be rubbish cause it's not for a BX, but it looks really good.

Congratulations on such a nice looking BX Simon.

thanks micheal your bx's look great too. i used meguirs speed detailer on there and brilliant stuff i must admit i was abit sceptical but pleasantly surprised even the spray on wax is good i waxed my galaxy and 3 weeks later when i jet washed it the water ws just beading off couldn't believe it... :roll:

anyway the nearside alloy needs a refurb i think dished alloys suit the bx
they seem to go well with the shape. 8)
