Those look like quite a good fit. Has anyone had any luck touching up the chrome effect finish on the plastic bit between the hoods and the levers? Mine are flaking as they usually do, I have some chrome effect spray paint but have yet to test it on anything, not sure how it will turn out...

spitball, if any of those sets of 1051 hoods are available, please pm me :)

The only time I have used that chrome paint was years ago and it was shite, wether it has been improved I don't know. Try it out on something and report back.
