I did have a strop so stopped for a cup of tea. Two of the bolts didn't go in straight so I ended up with a spinning rivnut, which after plenty of faff I managed to get the bolt out and then I tightened the rivnut again. Then used some coperslip and a bit more care. All done. Bolts are a bit long.


They do look the part Thumbs Up

Just in case anyone else is considering these guards, they do indeed fit KBX surrounds.

I've had these fitted for probably 3 years now and there's not a sign of corrosion etc. so hopefully that'll provide some reassurance to the group buyers - they have got themselves a bargain Thumbs Up

Well, if Flatdog still need 10 orders to make this viable we're at three already.

If no-one else wants to volunteer, and as long as I'm not stepping on any toes from the first order, I'm happy to get in touch with Flatdog and see what they say.

Never done a poll before, but I'm assuming a new one poll/post string would be the best way forward.

If no-one else jumps to provide any opposition, by let's say close of play tomorrow, I'll get in touch with Flatdog and see what they say. Then, if it seems to be still viable, I'll post a new thread/poll with the details.

Sound OK? 1994 Defender 300Tdi 110 SW - owned since 2002 - 216k miles and going strong

Hey guys,

Ok. Because no one raised any objections (!) I've gone ahead and emailed flatdog this afternoon. I'll give them a bit to reply, and if nothing comes back, I'll phone.

I'll come back here to update you all. If it's a go-er, I'll start a new thread/poll; if the 'computer says no' then I guess it would end here.

Watch this space!
