Salut Gareth

Mark down one interested - possibly two.

I think a design with just one logo would look classier - I suppose it would have to be in the middle if the LH and RH are identical.

I imagine you measured up to protect the max possible area.

Would a cut-away item like the one I pictured make things more difficult/expensive?

Thanks for offering to do the donkey work.

Yeah, that's nice. Mark down interest in two pairs - if the price is right, of course.

Merci et @+

Hi Gareth,

I would be intrested in a pair, one thing that has been going through my mind was how they would be fixed.

Salut Gareth

Do you think you could enquire about getting the +2 nose/moustache trim made up while you're at it?

EDIT: and rear dust shields!

Merci

ok price in.....

?40 per pair......(ie ?20 per kick plate)


thoughts?????


these are lazer etched (with no infill) grade 316 stainless steel
I think the lack of infill is more subtle and less 'in yer face'

thoughts?????
