    Did mine today, the only thing is, the rear door pin rods that stick out of the door cards have a bend in them and the door pins themself were too long, so i had to saw a little off so that they can be the same height as the front!

    But otherwise a simple mod, as been said, to remove the originals, just prise out the red plastic piece and they slide up!

    I never had that problem on my rear pins in my pre facelift siggy.
    Now I need a turbo to keep up!

    Me neither, although the holes in the pins needed a clean out as they were slightly blocked

    I had to cut the rear ones too. The rods are bent as Roy said so the rear pins sit higher than the front ones. Mine are Richbrook.

    Mine are Richbrook too mate, after seeing yours last Suday, i had to get some! They are well nice Steve, I wasnt sure weather to go for the black or silver, but i've gone for silver!

    Can't understand why pre-facelift and facelift are different though??
