While the lhs faux air intake was off to access the aux power outlet I thought I might give the black mesh part - which actually doesn’t let any air through – and the matching rhs side a rattle-can coat or two of silver paint, just to visually lighten-up those parts. Jimmy Raven did similarly with his SP but in a matching blurple colour.

And I just happened to have four stainless hex-head bolts of the right thread and length to secure the now-silver mesh, which was a bonus. The new look also chimes rather nicely with the adjacent silver-coloured radiator guard.

A coat of clear top-coat was added later to keep these forward-facing bug-prone parts nice and shiny, and easy to clean.

Not a big deal, but I’m happy!
