    My mods so far including painted rims

    I had mentioned in an earlier post that I wanted to get my rims painted.
    Its done and I am happy with the result - I'm from the old school and don't like everything black.
    List of my mods:
    Generic mirrors with home made stalks.
    Akra slip on.
    Removed radiator side panels (they seem to draw attention to the wide radiator). I prefer the more nuts and bolts/naked look.
    White Rims.
    Tail Tidy.
    Small panel to fill the gap between the top of the headlight and the bottom of the gauges and hide those 2 big bolts.
    Just a couple of photos for anybody whose interested.
    Kind Regards - Ray.
    P.S. I will keep you all informed of the modification to the Kaneg paddock stand, when I receive it.

    I like it. I'm another who shudders at the idea of the cleaning, but the white looks great.

    Superb. Really like the look, especially with the radiator side panels gone

    I love how the mods you've done make it look more retro than NSC. If you don't mind me saying the only bit that stands out and doesn't sit correctly aesthetically is the silver headlight surround. I think black would work way better
