When I got my 410 it came with lovely chromed brass tips, but sadly one got pulled off leaving a very steep driveway and the then squashed by a following car. Since then I have had a number of cheap Halfords downturned chrome tips, which were always dreadful quality and only lasted a year or two before rusting and looking terrible. However a couple of years ago I found some on eBay (https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/322995767559) which I am very happy with - stainless steel, decent thickness, and still in good condition nearly 15,000 miles later.
Just wanted to thank you again, Sam. I was in UK for the last month and picked up a pair of these from the maker while I was there. They are beautiful and will look terrific on the car.
