These were mine at three years old. I bought the Adventure when it was 12 months old with 1000 miles on the clock, but it was not garaged that first year. Subsequently, I used it summer months only.

As of 2019, the side protection was no longer available (Mantec had gone bust, but not sure if this was the reason) but front protection was. I requested anodising as a remedy, but the anodising wasn't thick enough and the corrosion was still visible.

Eventually, the garage painted them silver. They still look good, but with summer use only and the lockdown, the Adventure has rarely been used these past two years.

A reminder of how they looked when new

Anodising has no thickness. It is chemical conversion of the surface. You would need to prepare it first and remove corrosion. 1995 Defender 110 CSW

That explains it; I doubt the bodyshop knew much about it either! Current Steeds:
