Chrome strips

Selling off one (or bits :o) of your XM collection, or perhaps searching for those elusive headlight washer covers? This is the place to do it.

You can't buy new replacements. You can bring them back to life but it is a long winded and time consuming process.

I do have a set of the stainless steel replacement strips for the doors which I bought from Brian Primmer but never used. They're still in the packaging.

Alternatives which have been used include painting (bright-silver 'chrome' aerosol dupli-color or similar), or vinyl taping in chrome. Some write-ups on the forum.

Try Chevronics they show new stock of bumper chrome trim though you really need to love the car to justify the price. I've tried chrome vinyl on my sides pretty good but no chance to get it to fit curves of bumper. I did get a brand new front non washer trim from Citroen recently probably last available but you never know?

I bought a set from Mr Primmer five or six years ago and they're great – does anyone know if he's still in business and/or have his contact details?
Why don't we do it in the road?
