For those following this thread, the lack of recent activity is related to waiting for a slot to get it painted. Hopefully not too long now :-))

Yes ....ironically , the finishing and fitting up etc on Eric's Long nose example is part of the hold up ....

Ray - What colour are you going for?

If the answer is red, then the question should be what shade/type of red?

Ray is going for red ...I will let him tell you the shade if he chooses to .

We are literally in limbo waiting for our slot at the paint shop , its very frustrating. Can't be helped , but we were going at quite a pace and then stopped suddenly ...I have limited room and its sat in the back of the shop waiting ....

The trimmer has visited and taken the seat frames away to trim and has patterned out a couple of other trim pieces the cars getting ...so that is something .

I have to fit the grille and a couple of little jobs including a strip down for paint , but until we have a confirmed slot I won't remove too much ...

Car went to the paint shop a few days ago ...when Dave has made a bit of progress I will update the thread with some pictures ...

Car is going to be primed , left to sit for a few days and get wired during that period by Dave as well , then top coat applied ...so will be with him for a few weeks before it comes back for finishing ...

Another well finished example, looks really smart. I like the old period number plate too, I wish I had something similar on my car. I suppose I can get some show plates made but that's not the same.

Is the paint Barchetta Rossa, looks like a darker red, good choice.

Still not finished, loom to complete, interior to fit, safety checking and tuning, MOT, etc etc all still to be done.

Yes, the colour is Rosso Barchetta. Hard to photograph as it looks a different shade in virtually every light.

Regards the bonnet pins they look like the real deal. I've seen the repro ones offered on ebay, they are £250 a pair !!! They are chrome plated rather than stainless to boot. I need two pairs for the TR so I'm going to ask my local engineering shop to knock up a few sets in stainless. If I'm happy with their work ( I usually am ), Ill get a big batch made for those builders on here. Oh, I can guarantee they will be a lot more affordable too.

That would be great. I was lucky to get a second hand pair - I was desperate to get that authentic look.
