    that's kind of you to say - all I do is the crud catcher for the 1150 so I am sorry about that!

    no I haven`t mate but to be honest I`ve got a whole pile of stuff which kind people have suggested but simply haven`t been `taken up`. But anyway, there`s a big chunk of space between the lends and the headlight to get sponges and stuff down there to clean

    Just for reference, Makrolon is Polycarbonate which has gone through an annealing process after casting - that's what makes is so tuff (other annealed Polycarbonate brands are available) cracking product by the way!

    Hi Mark,
    I like the look of your headlight guard.
    Do you do Rad guards for a 14 GSA LC?
    Thanks
    John

    being new to the GS, i have looked through the forum for tips. it was a pleasure to meet Mark yesterday, who did the magic to my new to my GS; polycarb headlight protector, which looks great, anti-corrosion therapy, radiator guards, and engine crud protector; all done with speed and skill. everything i have read on the forum about cymarc and mark was borne out; bit thanks and would heartily recommend to all
