    Mmmmm, shiny :!:

    Back in the'70s there was an FJ Holden getting around, completely chromed. And I mean completely. Everything: body panels, engine, ancillaries etc etc etc . Now IT was shiny :!:

    It was owned by the Webster brothers (If my memory isn't as bad as I think it is).

    I'm sure their girlfriends hating polishing the bloody thing, though. [img]style_emoticons/<#EMO_DIR#>/tongue.gif[/img]

    Judging by the Landy picture, though, shiny metal looks better on curved surfaces..... like FJ's and aeroplanes. (Yes, I do like them [img]style_emoticons/<#EMO_DIR#>/laugh.gif[/img] )
    It's not broken. It's "Carbon Neutral".

    Have found some history about this one on the Dweb, the owner has done this to a few other beasts as well.

    Seems to like the polished aloy look.

    Speaking of which: wouldn't that alloy chequerplate on the front guards have the same effect ? :?

    Not too badly, only perhaps a little for the driver. Not really much for other vehicles though (unless they are VERY tall :wink: )

    Well I was thinking of the driver (that would be me) and don't really care about the effect on other vehicles (sorta kidding [img]style_emoticons/<#EMO_DIR#>/laugh.gif[/img] )

    Anyone with these alloy chequerplate guards offer any comments ?
