I tend to agree with Armadillo. They're only clip on covers anyway I think - no mirror.

Russian mafiosa would probably like them in which case I think they look lovely:D

"...I like your things very much!! Please don't make my sister pork ? ..."

Расслабьтесь товарищ!

Это не больно ни капельки!
Тогда мы будем петь песни и пить много водки! :thumbsup:

Oh and my nephew Constable Plod of VicPol reckons it looks more like Colombian Drug Lords car ! :eek:
But he drives a Mitsubishi Lancer - so who cares what he thinks anyway !:D

What do you polish your car with there Stormtigers........??
Lazy Man's Method.
Wash car first remove dirt and most crap.
Spray on FW1 High Performance Cleaning Wax with Carnauba Wax.
Work around with one cloth - wipe off with 2nd cloth.

I know it's not the ideal product and some say it has fillers - blah blah blah.
Due to shoulder injuries I can't do things like handwash and wax very often.
This does a good job as a temp measure until can get pro detail twice year !

You like ?

Or am I in the dog books for vehicle abuse ! :confused:

Looks filthy!! :):)

No photo shop going on there....???
EGAD _ You think I would stop to such lengths ? :eek:

No - no photoshop involved - freshly washed and waxed so was a photo opportunity (iPhone takes good photo doesn't it ).

Unfortunately we have a carport rather than a garage so the beast frequently collects dust form the park next door when the council decides to mow the grass. Most of the time it isn't this clean and shiny.

You found a seat yet ??

Well that is most impressive Stormtigers, looks amazing!!!

No decent seat yet, I think I might have to go with all new seat components (spring box, pad etc) from MB to get it right. At least I found a semi decent frame, it is in there now but it still sags in the wrong places and pokes into my left thy in others. Being 6'8" plus is a problem in so many ways........:):)

Thats a bummer as you've seen from some of the links I have sent you it would almost be cheaper to buy a whole car and swap interiors !

I don't know man...they look good on your car. Yes, I realize that they are just covers and I'd go for the painted ones. Just figured I'd ask and get some opinions..

The painted ones look good on Ray's car - not that I would say otherwise cos he lives near me:bash:

Wife's new Subaru has these from the factory by the way.

Just as an aside to this, someone said there may be issues with LED mirror blinkers and after market LED tail light replacements with the charging and electrical system on some cars. Might be worth checking out.

Stormtiger? Any issues with yours?

That's a Big NOPE ! No Issues. If anything headlight issue giving bulb out warning only. Can't be fagged adding the resistor in to fool the thing. Always figure it's one warning light I can do without. I do a weekly walkaround checking lights anyway !

By the way were you able to translate my reply ? :D
