Hi everyone
hope your all well.
Eriba 540gtd. 2003.
background:
Am currently got the wings, the back lights surrounds, number plate board, front lights and front fairing off re painting after the top coat peeled.
paint wise the fiat 655 is no longer assessible to me so am painting with vw tunsten silver with primer and a clear coat so all will be the same.
am looking for the screw covers that fit in the recessed holes in the wings, rear lights, number plate board, 8 in total, any one know the size looking for, the recessed hole is 1.8 cm, mine turned into powder uv damage perhaps.
thought would paint them same colour if could get hold.
the local bricks and mortar wobble box supplier has none,
however there are some on long river site

anyone purchased any, can share where got from and quality.?
many thanks for any help.

Perhaps too late to help as you have probably already bought the paint. But, if not, RAL 9007 is considered to be the original colour choice..

hth...

Can you share a photo? Have done a lot of these parts on mine, but it's a 2005 so almost certainly different from a 2003 (I think 2004 was a major update year - that's when they brought in the checker pattern aluminium panel at the front to replace the plastic - and the rear lights were certainly different)

heatwave suggested at weekend or warmer weather in Uk apparently, unless franklin interferes
we painted in a https://www.amazon.co.uk/Colapz-Camping-...ks%2C256&sr=1-1 (it was easy to put up and down in minutes,) shower tent with some parcel boxes to rest upon, that saved any spray, and wind issues
then transferred in to kitchen to rest upon more empty parcel boxes to stop any blooming
the stripping takes longer than expected,
the spray can trigger makes job easier paint wise we used 4 cans just for the 4 light surrounds no.plate,2 wings,
on with unpeeling front fairing now.
the fairing wont fit in shower tent all at once
unless hang up a challenge awaits
hope your paint job goes well

eriba front fairings are so a peeling,
almost peeled the clear off nails feel sore, if helps once lifted clear slide a screw driver in without touching / scratching the base more unsticks.

The change to the front fairing being made in checker plate aluminium in 2003 was a very good decision. Whilst I tackle the painting I will also give that aluminium a good polish up - it looks very dull next to the new aluminium front fairing I fitted earlier this year. My problem isn't so much where to paint, it's how to protect the Triton from rain whilst I do the job...

the caravan cover was on, taped up the holes where wires passed through, the screws were put back in holes, all parts were removed to work on.
