Thumbs up

Fantastic colour, it really sets off the chrome. I love the little touches you have done, they make all the difference.

From what we can see of it, the interior looks good too. Seats, 4 point harness and fire extinguisher etc.

Now that is a beauty.

Love the grill surround darker colour - sets of the rest of the from of the car.

My compliments

Dave

Jeff - Your car looks great.

Looking forward to seeing the colour in natural light.

Good luck, Paul.

Looks excellent.
You may be leaving the rear shelf as it is, but if you're going to cover it, make sure you do it before you put the window in. It is possible but very awkward and everything ends up covered in glue. Believe me, I made that mistake.

Just a thought but it could look good if you covered the shelf but left the holes as they look rather good with your race car theme.
Perhaps with some alloy edges to the circles.

Cheers, Bob.

The headlining and the rear shelf are all done with. It works well and is quite forgiving.

I was given enough to do mine and also given some a bit thicker. The thicker one was fine for padding the door trims but the thinner one folded best for the other parts.

Looking great, I love the red, a nod to the heritage but not the normal tacky Ferrari red!!

I do like the idea of carpet with holes in for the rear shelf, it may look a bit unfinished rather than racer looking if left bare. Or maybe a panel made in aluminium with racing holes?

Wheels look great as well, a case of less is more. All the gaps look nice and even, small point but I can imagine how much time and effort it must have taken but well worth it.

Only thing I'm not sold on is the black grill surround, I think chrome would match in better with the chrome head and spot lights. Beemabuild on the DNAOC website has bought in the chrome spraying system that it used on all the chrome parts on DNA's 2fifty.
I would suggest you invest in a chrome spraying kit, that way you could treat us all!!!!!!

That looks just great. Love the colour. Nice touch drenching in the rectangular fog light. Looks just right.

I am so with the use of steels on these - looks just right and doesn't divert funds that help on other details.

Could I enquirie as to wheel size, offset or spacers and tyre size please.

My compliments on the build.

Dave

It was only painted last Sunday.
Only poking fun elsewhere lol ☺ I know, I know...

Well it looks bloody awesome! Just noticed your positioning of number plate lights- they actually make more sense there because up top they only tend to light half the plate.

Great colour, always loved blood red, and car overall just looks awesome.

Got to agree with JagTVR about the grille though, could do with being silver, chrome or even white, but that's really just down to personal taste.

Top notch job on the bodywork Jeff, especially the tight panel gaps around the boot. I think Tribute could do well to negotiate with you to get a mould done from your car, would save a lot of fannying about with bodywork for future builders if they started off with a finish such as your car.

I like the painted grill finish too (although chrome would look good too obviously), bumpers would definitely finish the front end off.

Being controversial now, and going against the grain....I like the steely look wheels but they look too big to me and dominate a bit too much. Please don't take offence, it's just my opinion and we all know what they are like

John

I was admiring the wheel & tyre size thinking it brought the look more up to date and also giving it a more aggressive stance, It's nice to see every builders ideas..............so I can steal the best ones!
