Carl, thanks for the PM re: mirror covers. I'll chat to her ladyship and see what she wants to do. Shame you can't dip the whole car as that would sort out the marks where other folk have used her car as a door stop in the car park :evil:

Epic work Carl! =D> =D> =D> I'll be speaking to you very soon about getting a spot of dipping carried out on a few interior bits on some of my motors... I don't suppose you do a "black/grey wood" effect for my 2000E by any chance? [-o< and... (hint,hint) doesn't she look plain without a cabte pinstripe? (hinty hint, hint....hint hint) :lol:

Carl - would the finish be durable enough for the sliding door step in terms of scuffs and flexing with weight etc ?

Cheers

No the finish is like your paintwork of your car.
it would scratch very easy and also be very slippy when wet.
