    Once finished get a small handful of rocks
    Stand 10m in front of your bus
    Throw rocks at lower half of the front - careful to miss wind screen

    You will now have a small chip in the paint somewhere and can stop worrying about it and enjoy the ride.

    Above therapy worked for me and my freshly painted 1303L bug :)

    Barry, the thought made me cringe just a little too much, more than it probably should :eek: :eek:
    I think I'll just wait for nature to take it's course on this :p

    Underneath has been cleaned up and a healthy dose of stone guard has gone on.

    Paint on the underbody and in wheel arches. (Sorry about the small photos, taken from a text message but I'm sure you get the idea)

    Some more paint down on to match up the bumpers with the top section

    Not sure if I'll put this back on as we don't tow with it and it's more weight we don't need

    The tow bar might be handy for a bike rack? Also a bit of protection from people "touch parking" - but they are ugly though. It's a dilemma.

    I actually like the look of the matching bull and tow bars. So my vote is to put it back on.
    Good also for a bit of protection as Melissa says.

    Very good point Melisssa about the bike racks, forgot about them.
    It would be good for protection too, mainly more for my reversing than anything else :D Looks like it might go back on

    Bars look good jt. Put them back on.....remember the car park not recently visited:rolleyes:?

    Six of one half a dozen of the other. It doesn't matter whether you put them on or not.I don't like the rear protective bar but I do see the important nature of it. I'm afraid it's all up to you on this one.Way up the benefits versus the consequences of having it on of off.
