We haven't had a poll on this forum for a long time, nice one!
I voted yes as I think they look alright. Although I'm not keen on white ones, I'd paint them black.
I hope that answer won't make you cry like a baby! :lol:

Andrew.

Do you ever drive in fog JM :headscratch:

If you are keeping the lights on the car, then it's a yes from me too :)

Hi,
if you look to my profile picture, you can guess what I voted for. :)

No seriously, I think it looks very good and I'm for white color as it is.

It's a no from me I'm afraid, don't like the look. Mind you, it may well stop them from getting the glass smashed from flying stones etc..

Jason I voted 'other' mate :lol: but I talked to you earlier re this. Whilst I do like them with covers I really like the uncovered look too. Reckon spraying these black or even Mercury Grey would look better on your Laser mate and deffo worth doing to see how it looks if you really don't like them White.

Whatever you decide with or without it will look great but if I was really really pushed I would have to vote without :)

But here is another Capri at Deal that has them in White and it does look good as they kinda tie in with the pinstripe on the car.

I've said 'other'. They look OK but if you want to use the lights presumably you need to stop and remove the covers. Never sounds like a great idea to me :?

This is getting good having a poll might try one for when I pick my mother in laws care home .

So there’s a funny thing happened my darling sweet wife just said to me .
Marie “ can I be true-full with you “
Me ...” OMG what have I done “
Marie “ what have you done “
Me “ errr something but I get up to to many tricks “ and I laugh .
Marie “ they look stupid “
Me “ what looks stupid “
Marie “ The white things on your Car “
Marie “ maxwell or something written on them “
Me “ Maxwell “
Marie “ yes is that a coffee jar lid “
Me :lol: :lol:

Funny ask your mates what does it looks like and the wife wins with in 5 mins .

Plan B now I will try and fix the glass with one of them windscreen glass fixing kit .....

Great idea to use the UV light Jason, very cunning!

Look forward to seeing the covers as well when you're finished with them :)

How about using a textured paint to give the covers the same sort of finish as the bumper end caps?
