    Ive not seen chrome bits mate. Most people tend to have bits painted like airbox,engine cover,fuse box,battery cover. Im looking at painting mine

    back when i used to have a mk3 escort i used a company called spec-r , they used to make chrome bits , covers etc and i thinkthey did custom made to order stuff but dont know if theyre still around . might be worth searching for . if not then as above - paint or wrap stuff.

    You could carbon dip?

    Just got all new plastics for my insignia, as I wanted it re-dipped in matte carbon. Will post pics when I pick them up tomorrow.

    Here's a taster

    Is that a sign for no pressure washing?... Carbon does look cool, especially dipped and not wrapped
