Get a hat like this:

a paint scraper like this:

and a heat gun like this:

and become an automotive archaeologist ;).

 

Best place to look for original paint colour is inside the car, floors, rear boot area, firewall as those are unlikely to have been repainted..

 

Cuong might also know. I recall he said it wasn't originally 907 Green at 1 point but I could be wrong.

Well after a hectic few weeks of life messing up with my plans the build is moving along again. Engine bay is gonna get emptied out in the next 2 weeks and then it's off to the body shop.

Plus I managed to get my hands in a pair of seats for the Zed, here's one of them posing in a Corolla!

There was a bit of a delay but she's getting paint stripped and blasted within a fortnight.

 

Now I'm looking at getting flares, front spoiler and rear spoiler so that the body shop can fit them up while the cars I the shop. For a local dealer I can only find stuff from Otomoto, does anyone know of other suppliers?

Aaron I think you need to do two things.

Start a build thread posting photos, lots of photos with updates and use the search function and Google.

I am looking forward to seeing the car once it's sorted. What colour?

Nice car and great work so far!

 

Also keen to know what colour it's going to be, but also what colour it was originally!

 

Good luck
