So how does the vinyl meet the spoiler? I’m going to see if I can find some pictures
It doesn't meet the spoiler, it is vinyl covered down about 2" below the window. The vinyl is finished off with a metallic strip which runs across the tailgate to line up with the finishing trims on the rear pillars.

I know it's buggered it all up this year. Just organising a few local get togethers when possible.

What part of the country do you live?

Andy,

If you look at the front view of my car you will notice the wing mirrors are slightly different, is this normal like the old transporters or is one wrong?

Cheers

Do you mean that they don't match each other? The passenger side was a smaller slimmer size/shape whereas the driver's side is bigger. They look correct to me anyways

Oh okay, I thought one may have been replaced with a different one as not quite the same.

Thanx!

I fear I’m turning into a Capri head!

Welcome to the forum.
The drivers mirror is bigger because it has the adjuster mechanism inside.
