You are right Rob but as I'm trying to get rid of all the black wanted the chrome ones - probably just to wind up all the chrome haters out there Neer Neer

Apparently it's easy to do yourself (say's me who can't hold a screwdriver the right way up). I posted the how to over on TM, I think it takes longer with the cab due to the awkward roof and hinged boot so unless you need Mikey for other things give it a go.
