Me Riley needs more fading though maybe an off colour panel. Do like the vintage signage where do you get them from?

Maybe paint front spoiler black with destressed look and then nice set of wheels and lower it :).

Cheers Gents.
Gav i actually got some pics of the www thingy and just masked
and sprayed the signs. got a friend to make some stencils as he is
a sign writer which made the numbers and letters pretty easy.

The car has only got 100 mm ground clearance now , how bloody slammed
do you guys want it.
Hopefully my ZG flares and Rota's will rock up today for the car. then it is
gunna be filthy.

Cheers
Paul

Great work on the decals Paul, the aging looks fantastic! I'm not a great fan of the 240 on page 2, but I love the idea of a 'barnfind' type racer from the 70's.

Hi Paul
I love what you are doing to the 260.  It's of particular interest to me as I helped build this car years ago and you bought it from my son.  It was my idea for the stripes......I like them......a bit of fun, much like what you are doing.
In fact, I have my 240 on Gumtree at the moment and that has stripes as well.
I think your Zed will be a hit and much photographed where ever you take it.  Well done on being adventurous.
Cheers
Philip

HI All
my mate has one of those mini truck thingies with he switches and sparks fly from that.  ;D

This car is coming up better than i hoped, I cant wait for the flares etc. Bloody couriers.

Hi Phillip Your 240 should sell no probs for the price you have on it. Ive never really liked
stripes over the car on Road Cars. That's why this car was perfect for me to do this to.
I hope Travis likes it, I intend to take it to his house when I'm done to show him.
regards
Paul

That does indeed look awesome. I agree about losing the bumpers. The holes and indents in the body would add to the look too I think.

Hi,
Yeah i may loose the bumpers later, don't want to push my luck to
far with the local constabulary.

OK its dropped and wheel aligned. Thanks to Thriller for working out
a good arrangement for the flares .
Put back in shed tomorrow for Matte Clear.

Regards
Paul

Im with Benny on that one; the clear might give it a too even look? If you get what I mean..

You've been working at a cracking pace, Paul.  I really like it. Have you considered chrome bumpers? (with rust and dents of course)

Hey lads
I do agree with that as well but the basecoat is very
venerable with nothing on top. I will only be putting a very
light coat on just to help protect it. definitely not 3 heavy coats.

Roberto ultimately i would have no bars as racecars dont have them
but i said dont want to push my luck with cops and there yellow stickers

Cheers

That has come up a treat, looks brilliant.

I would love to see the flat capper leather patch brigade tut tutting over it at scrutineering for a pukkah historic event.

One of the better paint jobs I have seen for pice of old decrepid junk ;D
