Does look nice, On my Tit grey Rex I've been thinking of getting my wheels & Strakes powder coated black as they have been kerbed and corroding. Don't know if it would look as nice as on silver.

I'm sure it'll look great, the contrast with the grey should work nicely.

Sun was shining, so thought it would be rude not to take a few snaps...

Some equally lovely roads round there too. Just bendy enough that you can keep it in 2nd almost the whole time. Great fun.

Few pics showing latest look - the little black dots are flies which seemed to go crazy for the smell of dodo juice - can't really blame them !

I'm glad :) interested to hear what others think about it, had a few good comments in work today too. I've been contemplating it for a long time and have a folder full of silver 8/black bonnet pics scoured from the internet to help me decide if it would be rice or nice! Well after I stuffed mine during a little mishap in the garage I thought it was time to try it out. Thanks to conann for the bonnet :)

I'm not normally keen on the black or whatever different colour bonnet look, but I agree, that looks good. 8)
