What did you paint the bezel with? Vinyl paint? I would think you could buff/polish the plastic for a similar look / restoration.

I used a Dulux Satin black, worked very well. I did try to polish them first, but all of the bezels had slight scratches and marks that only abit of fine sandpaper removed. If your bezels were perfectly smooth, polish would work - mine weren't!

Found some pretty decent series 2 hub caps. Cleaned them up and Ceramic coated them. Had some NOS Centre Z caps ready to go onto them, just need to get some of the circlips to hold them in place. 


New on the left, old on the right. Never knew how metallic the centre red gel part is. IMG_4294.thumb.JPEG.ae28bd27ec5fd193e92292effb5414dc.JPEG


Not bad for being over 50 years old, they're not in NOS condition, but definitely a solid 9/10 which will be fine for me. 

S30 World had promotion for Free shipping for their handbrake cables, couldn't resist that. 


Had some time over christmas to do a minor rust spot. LH Front sill area. I repaired the inner piece and cut the outter rusty piece out like a year ago and was just waiting for a time to do it. 


Still needing rear 1/4 panels before any major welding can take place.
