I hope so, BigH's should be painted by the end of the month so will have a look at the colour -Porsche guards red. Will make a decision then on colour.

Just need to sort he alloys and then I'm done. Hopeful for a summer registration

Looking good, what colour are you going for? Both Red and White work really well but I would love to see one in the bright Lambo green!

It looks like I will shortly be having to collect my Murcielago replica from Extreme which needs a lot of work to finish so there should be a few Lambo builds on the go here.

I will be going white paint ( was thinking Audi Ibis White but that might too white/blue if you know what I mean) - might go for a traditional lambo white from the 80's.

The interior is being done in White leather, black piping on the seats, black dash top with white face and red / maroon carpets with either white or red edging

Sounds great. The balloon white is very nice, I've seen a few Murci's in it and its stunning up close. Not sure if it may be a little too modern for a countach though.

Hmm, love that colour, seen a few pics of countachs in that colour. Isn't it a Pearl? Been put off pearl due to scratches and having to redo instead of touch up?

Also the current cost is high enough, that colour will "balloon" the amount so much

Screen sorted, it's A550. The rear quarter lights are going to be a problem and cost a bit to get the current tooling reset so will fit my frames.

Going green glass with blue top.

Out of interest, how are your side pods fixed on? Are they quickly removable so that you can get to the rads?
