Anyway, back on topic...

Really looking forward to seeing the car in paint now. :cool:

Ah, yes, I forget about the 'Pandora' thing.

Oddly, Pandora's box was actually a Hewland Mk5.

Who knew! LOL

And a quick edit to see what it would look like painted

Next project now decided upon, it's just a question of convincing SWMBO we need a SWB (she's kind of agreed that I can build one in two years time, she just doesn't know it yet...) -

The car looks great from any angle - in the last shot above a potential customer asked what it would look like lowered at the front, so Chris dropped it two inches using just the power of his fingertips.

It was nice to meet Chris and Dan (and IanA), and well done for getting it ready for the show.

Very glad to see the stand was so busy today & thanks to Dan for showing me round. My 15 year old son has already started dropping hints about first cars....well, there are a few smaller engined Z3's around!

It was worth the 400 mile round trip to see the SWB.
The car looks great and Chris and Dan were very busy on Sunday

Looks good from all angles

Chris & Dan - Many congratulations on getting the car looking so good for the show. :cool:

Hope you get the chance for a short break before the orders start flooding in.

Good luck, Paul. :)

Chris: er... I appear to have my finger stuck . Could you help .
Geoff: I've farted if i wave my hands around it should disperse the smell. I'll leave that one with you Chris.

Geoff:" ...and his beard was this long you say....?"
Chris:"..yeah, and he got it stuck in the window runner right here..."

Chris: This is the best way to feel if the panels flat...
Geoff: Put it away, Chris...
