Britpart stainless side steps

Hi there,

I am looking at replacing my rusted masai tubular side steps with a set of stainless 3 inch ones by britpart.

Anyone use these?

Any issues..I'm assuming the stainless doesn't rust.. ๐Ÿ˜€

Cheers folks

Pretty sure IRB developments have fitted a few of these, even painting them black

Uproar do other stainless options, but they arenโ€™t as factory looking in my opinion

Potentially interesting thread as various forum members (including me) were considering the (Zinc Coated) Masai Side Steps to avoid them rusting through like OEM steps, it would appear they do much the same...rust! Since 1973...S1, Air Portables, Defenders & finally 2016 90 XS HT & 90 Wolf

Sadly both side steps are rusted at the rear wheel area, I suspect from debris and the Masai roof rack has also started to rust at several points... that will need to be redone also.

Going to see what my local powder coaters think about the rust damage on the steps before I consider replacements.

Thanks for the picture of the fitted stainless ones iggle piggle. 2006 TD5

Fitted a pair of these a few years ago still look as good as new and not one speck of rust.
fitted these for the same reason as you got fed up with side steps rusting and looking sh*t. For those who like Welsh Mountains and narrow boats have a look at my videos and photos at..

If they are the ones you are asking about I was going to say the same as Gilarion,
They have lasted really well, no rust or blemish to the shine,
I have actually painted them black now & much prefer them than the chrome
