That's a good idea, maybe the material could be used as the wheelarches themselves?

Good idea - does the resin release from it without wax or other mould release?

The resin doesn't stick, it just peels away.

WOW, great finish straight from the gun.
I was going to carpet the inside of the boot lid and flow coat the rest, very little effort needed!

Do I spot an extended bonnet vent as well?

Liquid glass. That takes a lot of prep and skill, as well as a lot of time.

That really is the dogs dangly's.I think i might leave mine in primer.

"It has come out ok"..................you @XX@!



The more I look at the pictures the more I hate you!

Simply stunning.

A set of brand new chrome wire wheels would look stunning against the dark blue. Any idea of the seat choice and is it going to be a standard or retro interior? I know Brian from DNA understandably won't sell his 2fifty dash's on their own but it would look superb in this car. Maybe some grovelling and pleading along with a wheelbarrow full of cash might tempt him!

Jeff - I was looking forward to seeing this in colour and it was well worth waiting for, what an amazing job.

I'm sure the customer will love it.

Good luck, Paul.

That interior against the dark blue would look fantastic.
I love the seats but don't think I could live with seats that didn't fully adjust.

I hope we can see some photos of the finished car. If your customer can fit the Borrani wheels , they will really finish it off. I'll be interested as to how he does manage to fit them as most of the wire wheel options I've seen stick out a long way from the arches.

I think with the price of Borrani's you can specify the off set. It's just how the spokes are set up.
