Any quick fixes?

Recommended Posts

That’s got to be one of the more unusual dings I’ve seen. Looks like someone took a pot shot with an air gun. ;)

What are the prices for parts and fitting like?


Circa £80 each and with some force the old can be removed and the new pressed on. Part number: 18308511729

I was more thinking a very unlucky stone chip from the ground. Just hard to confirm what it could have been.

Well I don’t think the dent is causing me an £80 itch….. yet.

Try using a G-clamp to flatten the dent with some soft material in between to prevent scratching the surface.

I was quoted £62 for one of mine a few years back from Cotsowlds.

And that's the same stance I took! 

 

Ironically the one that was replaced (in 2018) is now looking shabbier than the original from 2013!

Maybe pull them off and straighten the gunshot 1 and swap them around if possible.

I didn’t know it can be pulled off so much more willing to try than then spend any money on something so negligible.

 

Is it literally something that can be yanked off quite easily with force and just put back in?
