Default The Kebab

Hi, It's time to introduce myself and my project.
I've been a serial classic/kit car/hot rod/motorbike owner for the last 40 years owning cars such as V8 Austin A30, Chopped Ford Pop, replica Ford Model A roadster, B roadster, A pickup, Ford model A pickup on a Beetle floorpan, Lowered tuned Renault 4, Triumph Renown with V6 and until earlier this year a !956 International Harvester with Jaguar running gear.
I've never had any mechanical ability but it never stopped me as I can visualise a look I'm trying to achieve and find the parts to get there. I see myself more as a project manager.


Time for a new project and a new direction. So I looked on this site and bought a 2.8 Z3, nicknamed by our car club as 'The Kebab' as it's only a Doner… yes, I know, daft but we are a pretty daft little group.

It looks good in the pictures but is a '10 yard' car, the paint is not great and the hood has small holes. Perfect as they'll be going anyway.

A trip to see Chris has ended with me being booked for a 250 swb conversion in the Spring.

Another web site I go on has several members who are good at photoshop so I put in a few of my paint & detail ideas up to see if they could do a likeness to help me pick a plan. It's not produced anything sensible yet, but I do love this idea. The number of purists you could really offend would make all the work worthwhile.

Now the fun starts, I can make a shopping list of lights, mirrors etc to take down at conversion time. I'd still like someone who can do photoshop to picture my colour and wheel choice ideas if anyone here can.

All the best for Christmas and the New Year. I'll write more when things start to happen. (I did buy a service kit and a tyre today. Not exciting but best to get the basics sorted first.

Cheers, Bob.
