My cars gong back together shortly after it’s paint job. Does anyone know where I can purchase a set of kick plates for a Coupe please?

The normal Scimitar ones although about 1 inch longer fit very well. I fitted a new pair of plates to my MB and used to old plates in the Coupe.Unfortunately the plates I removed from the Coupe I cut up to make fog light brackets.

Thanks for trying Peter. The cars just been painted so looking for nice shiny NOS type, probably highly unlikely though.

This thread prompted me to look at mine ,5a , tried to clean them up as advised but still not really happy , then I recalled that I had some thing like this made up by a small company for a particular Range Rover I had . They go by the name Bayco and I managed to find the email add and sent an enquire , got a reply saying they still did one off jobs and requested a spec from me so they can give a quote , when / if it comes I will let you know , just a back up plan . Regards Richard .

Gents, thanks for all your assistance and advice. Dave S (above) has found a spare kick plate so I am off the hook thanks to Dave.
