Cheers mate, I'll just paint them with Satin black hammerite, as said, it'll probably happen again!
As for protecting the protectors with pipe lagging? That's like having two spare tv's in case the 1st and 2nd one break down! (Oh no, I'm down to my last ten tv's, what if they start breaking down????) Ha ha!
Crash bars worked, end of. A bit of paint and we're cooking!
Oh and a bit of heat and bending for that brake pedal! Not sure what to do with the plastics though, any thoughts on removing scuffs? Not painted bits, the black plastic that connects to the belly pan.
