The paint is a couple of shades lighter than I thought it was going to be but it looks very period and similar to sports cars in the 60's.

Big alloys look just right on these as on Barber's car. I've fitted 8"-17" deep dish alloys with 235 /50 - 17 tyres but you could go another 2" wider on the back and 265 / 40's perhaps.
