    After 12 attempts...

    ....I've finally found some side reps that I'm happy with

    I must have tried just about every make of Mk4 tinted ones I could find, plus some vectra B's and a few Mk3 Astra ones too. All have been pretty poor quality, either in materials or build.

    Even so, these needed modding before they went on the car - which consisted of sanding off all the embossed writing and polishing back up again and making some custom gaskets to go undeneath, as the supplied ones were the wrong shape .

    But, I got there in the end and the search is over

    I know what you mean about the crap out there with the tinted MK4 side repeaters, hopefully the latest set i've got will be alright

    I've not got a photos of those from further away, but these are very similar shape/tint, but not as well fitting as the new ones...




    /\/\ That photo was taken by Sten at a Scottish meet Scottish meet back in (very) early 2006. I think they were set No.3

    Cheers for the comments folks, it's only when I look at photos as old as this one that I realised how long the "quest" has been
