Yeah welcome back mpen.

I always though Carly mirrors were body coloured.

I finally got round to polishing and painting my Carly wheels (one set done one set to go). What did you put on the polished bit to keep it shinny?

Thanks Chaps, I always thought they were coloured,can anybody else help with this one please.

Adrian I always used solvol autosol on the polished edges on my carlsson, in the winter months after polishing them I smeared vaseline on (until the wife got jealous)

Mark, I have currently one body coloured and one black coloured mirror on mine. And when some other ******** smashes the body coloured one in tesco car park.....I will have 2 black ones.
A possible explanation? Body coloured ones seem difficult to get hold of..........

Damn,

My genuine '91 2.3T Carly is on those same wheels 15's ? he's flogged the aeros just like the guy I got my car from did - for £200 !

Looks ok to me. Could be a re-body but thats about it - mine looks even less genuine, as a rear prang resulted in a used non decor panel bootlid being fitted and the spoiler retrofitted to that.


Mines gonna have a black mirror next week - they must be too brittle because the last inch has sheered clean off with a nice straight vertical end and no other damage.

I'm going for the lo-rent look with this one, do the mechanicals and weight and leave the body and wheels. Whats the Saab equivalent of the motorcycling worlds rat-bike?
