Classic Replicas Dino

Very nice, the colour really suits it.

tonyvan 22nd December 2019 16:54

Nice looking car bit just looks odd without the front bumpers!!

DaveP 22nd December 2019 17:44

Very nice indeed.

And I prefer it without the bumpers. Not pure but the lines are great.

tonyvan 22nd December 2019 18:11

I’ve had my bumpers off for over a year, while having them rechromed, and some paint work done, and lots of other works done, and personally I can’t wait to get the bumpers back on.

Very nice indeed, love the colour choice too, really suits it :thumb:

Nice motor Tony (understatement of course).

Dave :)

Thank u, it’s come quite a long way from when I first got it. Changing the wheels to the correct 5 stud pattern, authenticating the wing mirrors and hubcaps which have now price wise, gone through the roof. Lol

Very nice car-but is it an actual classic rep. From the photo's it looks to be in america or canada. I know they remade it to be more exact but I've never seen one hit the road-yet. Do you know for sure this is a replica kit-not an actual dino??:ohwell:

Hi Ian
I know of one Classic Replicas Dino which is on the road at the moment, it's a replica of the "46" car which completed at Le Mans in 1972 and the owner has brought it to Stoneleigh for the past 5 years.

There should be another one on the road when I get mine finished sometime in the next ...err...decade :pray:

tonyvan 30th December 2019 10:07

I’m hoping to pull my finger out and get mine on tbe rd this coming year 2020 and finally make Stoneleigh 2020. I said that last year but had to wait for rear hubs to be machined and hub caps to made etc and before I knew it Stoneleigh came and went, and the summer flew by. All being well, it will be ready. Just have a new roof lining to install bit of paint which I aim to get to the painters before the end of jan 2020, and re install re chromed bumpers. Hope to see urs soooon Neil lol

Hi all

I've seen the 46 car and a couple of other cr dino kits but these were all deon based. Cr in their last gasp remade the chassis to be more exact to the real thing, and also remoulded the body from an actual dino. This is the blue car featured here (one with no bumpers) and is the first I've seen finished.
I did attempt to buy one of these later spec chassis a while back but he wanted too much £££ for it and it didn't come with any suspension-although he said he might be able to get some!! If there is one of these later chassis/suspension or unfinished kits out there for sale I'm interested. Be easier than build my own from scratch which at the moment is taking longer than I thought it would!!:playball::playball:

Well I’m undecided, I bought white perforated foam backed headlining ages ago, but then saw this black vinyl with red stitching and bought some, so now I’m not sure which one to use!!!
Help !!!!! What do u guys think?
I’m ready to get this stuck up, so I’m now ready to pull the trigger and get it installed.

Mister Towed 12th May 2020 17:53

My vote would be for the white perforated headliner.

The black and red stitched diamond pattern looks more Gold plated Lambo on 26" rims rather than one of the coolest Italian Classics of all time.

Just my opinion.

tonyvan 12th May 2020 18:03

I agree with you comments, I bought the perforated scrim back headlining nearly 2 years ago, I saw the black vinyl and bought a mtr to see how it looked. Think I’m swaying back to the white but please keep the comments going

molleur 12th May 2020 20:12

White perforated would be my choice as well.

kon 13th May 2020 08:21

Tough call. the white perforated does look more retro, but the black looks a bit sleeker. What do your seats and wheels look like? if they look modern, i'd go with the black, but if it's wire spokes then the white would probably suit the classic look better.

NeilF355 13th May 2020 08:47

Hi Tony
I would use the white perforated.
It's what I used in my GTO even though the rest of the interior was black.
It lightened the interior up a bit even though, to be honest, the headlining is not something which you notice that much.

Mister Towed 13th May 2020 11:30

Great looking car either way -

Hi Neil,
The interior is black seats, door cards-and centre console, with red piping, charcoal carpets and I agree, I wanted it to be a bit lighter in the interior. So it looks like itís back to my original plan and stick with the white perforated lining. Will get this done hopefully in the next few days just waiting for the glass to clad down one wall in the garage opposite the Dino. This should be here Friday so depending on the weather I will get the roof lining done Sat at latest.
Most of the electrics done, added a retro radio with Bluetooth , Aux outlets etc, cigarette lighter charger for additional sat nav, dash cam and tyre monitors (tyrepal) plus a Auto Vox rear camera just below rear no plate and screen.

Decided to give the car a polish with turtle wax ceramic donít actually show the shine it gives justice.will tackle the roof lining in the next few days, got bits to do in garage so the roof lining will take a back seat for a few days.

So got the mirrors done and then no excuse but to tackle the roof lining very very soon.

NeilF355 17th May 2020 08:01

Hi Tony
That's a tidy set up (in every respect) you have there :hail:
Must admit that most of the wall space in my garage is taken up with racks for my tools or shelving for rubbish which might just come in useful one day :laugh:

Keep up the good work.

tonyvan 18th May 2020 06:50

Hi Neil, I do try keep the garage neat and tidy. Lucky for me I have a big loft spaced in the garage to store the “junk “in boxes that I may need one day. I am finding i have more tools that seem to be not going back into the tool box so I think it’s time to have a big tidy up. Was getting frustrated as I had an issue with intermittent headlight working then not working.Finally traced that to dirty connectors under the car and also with the indicators, again another connection block in the boot well needed cleaning and dielectric grease applied. Then found the old Lucas flasher was playing up so have now ordered an equivalent electronic flasher unit which I’m now waiting for. App the old mechanical one is really susceptible to voltage drop. Apart from that everything is good to go.........oooh apart from the roof lining which I keep putting off. Lol
