    Does yours have the holes in the panels though?

    The early (R1130) R8 never had the dress trims, only the latter R1132 - some called it the major, some called it the 1100. The door ones off an R10 should fit but not the front and rear guards. I believe there is a difference in metal between R8 and R10 - I don’t recall which. I think the R10 is stainless and R8 aluminium perhaps? They certainly have a different sheen - one being more matte in appearance than the other.

    Are you sure KB? My R1130 has the horizontal trims in ally. The "step roof" very early R1130 that's turned up in Perth has also exactly that trim.

    I haven't the stainless strip on the gutter though.

    The eight side trim strips are available new from Mecaparts in stainless, for a price of course....
