Dark racing green will look good. Actually, with that body shape
almost any color would look good. Dark BRG is nice.

Default Goodwood Green (60s version)

I always liked this 1960s Leyland colour as it was quite dark. A pal of mine had a two door Austin 1100 in it.

Regards, Mick

Make it British Racing Green - how many 'shades' of BRG are there? Maybe 5

Should you like a really dark green, check out BMW color code 307
Dunkle Grun.

BRG sounds good to me. Did you see how Scottie's (Jag-inspired) A352 came out? Connaught Green i believe it was:

Yes I remember his build and the paint job he did, a very good finish ! I think I'll be going for something similar.

That picture was taken outside my house (reflection behind the S of Share) when Scottie came over to gee me up in finishing my own A352.

Managed to get most of the wiring done now using my simple loom made from heavy duty trailer cable. Its a neat solution to an otherwise potentially messy job if you try running individual wires to everything ! The plan is to have the car drivable by the end of the week, maybe !

A couple of recent photo's showing the pollycarb screen trial fitted. I made some stainless brackets to support the screen, fitting it against the moulded indent in the scuttle. Looks neat enough and piping used to seal the join. I'll find some nicer screws for the final assembly !
The under bonnet area is just about done, I'm really trying to make it neat and clutter free !
Paint is on order , went with Connaught Green in the end ! That should be here next week by which time the car will be stripped ready !

Slow progress over the last couple of weeks ! Ali panel work is complete and included the boot area, the interior and under bonnet . I really must invest in a guillotine , using tin snips takes for ever ! The body needs prepping ready for paint, start on that during the week all being well.

The paint job has turned out great. The dark Connaught Green was a good choice in the end, it suits the car really well.
Final reassembly now and should be just about done. I'll post some photo's when I've got it all back together !
The V5 has been processed by the DVLA so that's all up to date now showing correct make and model.
