It will go to DDB every month to keep ontop of it.

I was going to get the spoiler painted as its bubbling a bit but the colour would be a mis match so just leaving it as its orignal.

Wheels i think im gunn have to just pay the money for them to be redone in orignal, grey centres and polished outer lip

Hi Rich, looking good and I'm glad it has gone to someone who is willing to invest further in it. As Tim says the white does go flat again pretty quick if you don't keep on top of it as I do know (I once had it shiny for a short while ;-) ), You should get the spoiler done to make it right and also as Tim has said it should be very easy to get a perfect match.
In Reference to the wheels if you wanted to fit the original steel wheels I gave you I do have a brand new set of the original fitment TZD wheel trims you could buy to compliment them although they are not cheep at current market value of £25 per trim.

I have no delusions about how limited the 4x4 system will be, it's no Land Rover and at twice the RFL is an expensive 'just in case'!
