    Thanks , as I say mine is the same colour , however my spotlight surrounds are faded silver and im not sure if I should paint them blue , I want to keep it as original as possible but yours look really good.

    Hub caps? Look like me Mums pan lids! :p ;)

    What vehicle are they off originally? I seem to recall the royal household land rovers sporting similar shiny covers.

    They are actual land rover ones which appear in the parts book.

    These ones came off the petrol series 3 which was replaced with the diesel i have now, we just swapped the overdrive, hubs and caps over

    They look OK, but would be even better in std cream rather than white?

    Read through this thread, now thinking my 90 needs a friend in the form of a series 3! :D

    I do think that blue/off-white combo is the best colour scheme on a series 3 :)
