    Today my illuminated tread plates arrived (thanks to Nick) £450 including postage.

    It's only a 5 minute job to fit them and I think they look good.



    Obviously they will look better when it's dark.

    I also phoned Spires and the exhaust will be ready the first week in June. So I will pop down to Warwick to have that fitted.

    Looking good Steve, £450 for all 4 is a good price mate, well done!

    Really need to take a pic in the dark though and re post.

    Exhaust in the "pipe line" too shortly, no doubt a sound video will be shared?

    Cheers

    Thanks Rich, yes I'm looking forward to the exhaust mod. It's taking longer due to this virus.

    Cheers Colin.

    I was really pleased with the cost Jim, less than half price from new!

    I will definitely post a sound video of that nice V8 burble.

    It's a dark rainy day here so I should be able to post a better photo tonight.
