Loved the original colour mate, but also realise there are lots of options.

My fave colour of all time is burnt orange, the McLaren F1 colour, if that's any different to the lotus one?

Essex blue is stunning, but then I would say that! :D

Thanks for the suggestions guys!

After much deliberation I think a decision has been made.

 

I'll post up the photos when she's done  :D

Its been a long time coming but finally....

 

The question is do i keep it the same colour?

Apparently everybody that comes into the paint shop is saying spray it white!

I second that. Crome is not really that good looking... I am polite ;)

I think it an American thing, maybe because many American cars in the past had big crome hubcaps.

Where as if you want a crome effect, strip tehm clean, powdercoat them Black and then add special silver paint on top. This way, you'll darken the silver with a crome effect. Nice looking and a bit crome special ;)

 

bright silver paintjob is my favourite.

 

Kind regards,

Jacques.

Bugger! A decision has been made. I was going to say the winner. Fuschia Pink. :getmecoat:

Looks like Punky went with the second option. :)

Today has been a day of reassembly.

I can't remember how long I've had these light clusters in the attic! I bought them at the very first parts sale in Avonmouth.

A thing of true beauty - you could improve it though......... Add a couple of scantily clad lovelies leaning on her

Not had chance to take any pretty pictures yet but she is back and looking lovely.

Chris has been great allowing me to go back and forth to fit and fettle bits and pieces.

Here's a few I've taken so far.  :)
