I ordered a set, so I'll post pix when they come in.

I intend to paint mine black, and I ordered the blank center panel so I could cut my own holes. They appear to be made out of a nice thick stock.

Funny, I thought the exact same thing. Maybe some have it powdercoated anti-glare black for the dash.

Edit: Check out those wire mesh wingtop vents. Might have to pop for those and have them powder coated black.

Yeah, I got mine on ebay even though they have a website. I paid like 40 for both parts incl shipping. They seem to be experiementing with how much to charge, so you have a choice of paying 5 pounds or 7 pound from the same seller. I just bought from the cheapest auction.

My bling panels just came in - they dont suck at all.

Laser cut from 3 mm stock, so they are every bit as beefy as your fender protectors.

The stainless steel stuff is ok but if you want the best then have a look at:
www.croytec.co.uk/land%20rover%20upgrade.htm

They are machined out of billit aluminium and each piece is the same as the origonal, not just thin bits of sheet metal.

I have the whole set and they look great and are fantastic quality.

It is over 200 for everything but worth it i think.

Best regards

James

If you're gonna get the 5-bar tread plate don't look for it in the US. Bling Master J and I've been looking for it here and I can't even find a wholesaler that carries it.

Search the board. I remember 5 bar coming up and someone offered up info about an east coast dealer. It really isn't that rare here. I think it's called something other than 5 bar in the trades over here...

I like the instrument cluster panel from Tinpony, anyone tried that? I guess for NAS you just flip it over to fit? Hey Jim, can you post some pics when you get them on?

Black steel floor mats, cool but would not do too well in my part of the country! Found a house yet Burke?

If someone wants, they can have my blank center plate for 22.50 shipped. I decided to get a 3-hole one.
