Thanks again, guys!

On the bumper re-chroming, been quoted £550 for front (not over riders, as they are really good) and rear. 4 weeks to get it done. Will mull over that vs. stainless!

Never try and argue with an idiot. They drag you down to their level, then beat you based on experience.

Small update - new tank sender replaced and gauge now working, one shot suspension bush replaced, everything greased, original steering wheel fitted. I think it looks much better with the original wheel.

Also, photo of the engine bay and plate, which I forgot to post previously!
