The difficult bit will be to peel off all the labels and sticking them on the right way around...

Kev,
The best to make them look right is to wear inverting spectacles. Any other brain teasers, just let me know.
Cheers,

Hi Mal
This type of console is usually on "L" models so does it mean only this model fades dunno :?

The red main beam light was use on the M model as well -as for the colour fading to brown I think it must have been something to do with the printing process as the gear position sticker and the calliper stickers used to go the same Way

I might put honda ones on the 550J, cos they aren't as expensive. No-one will notice. :roll:

Exactly the same thing used to happen to the wheel trim centre badges on 70s Rovers and MG's they must have used the same printing process
