Hmm... bit much?

Sparky Charger.JPG

I would think the old aluminium grill would look better, perhaps with the uprights painted matt black so you can just see the horizontal lines.
 
I did think what would look really cool on a S1 P6 is a "hidden light" grille like the dodge charger. It'd have to be a perfect continuation made by chopping another original item and look absolutely "factory"

That was my original idea as on page one on here, on my list of things to do....and I bought 6 grills to do it, was painting matt black with black 'flyeyes' on headlamps

but somewhere along the line......
all grills now given to another p6 owner

I used a pic of the ''The Rovering Members'' car to try get an idea

Excellent idea, PeterZRH. Don't know why I've never thought of that. Now I'm going to have to, at the very least, Photoshop a visual together...
Sorry for going off topic there, Northern Soul! Great to see your wicked whip out in the daylight. Looking forward to seeing it wrapped. Thinking about doing the same myself, to hide the places where my paintwork is bubbling up already until I can afford to get it repainted properly.
WAS... going to 'wrap it' .....but paint is now the order of the day
the beauty of wrap is you can bodyfill sand and just wrap over, if it bubbles, lift fill sand and restick!

heres one I did earlier!

Pics of progress........to be painted xmas week by my lad....unless snow stops play

colour chosen ....grey as on very early models

air intakes have had carbon wrap removed.....that should make some of you happy

It's seemed a long build and that it would never end.....but boy am I looking forward to next years shows!

To all those that have been looking in, have the Xmas you wish for!!!

interesting picture, looks million dollars too.
how does wrap sick to the body?
how does wrap form to a curve?
how do you learn how to do it?
is it cost effective campared to painting...labour and materials?
that will do for now...:rolleyes:

Hi Peter.

It's sticky backed....and you use heatgun to shape....

and in todays world, if you want to see how something is carried out, you have to look no further than You Tube and its all there for the world to see!

its only cost effective if you are buying the wrap or paint supplies and doing it yourself.

each process left to experts these day is costly, goes without saying.

a cheaper alternative I have used on 3 cars to date.....is FABLON...

ah brings back memories.....of how we used to revamp our old kitchen units with this!!!

all the best for xmas

hi Ray, thanks for the info.
I too remember Fablon, recovered my homework bench in my bedroom, when 14 yrs old, did a perfect job, then started looking around for anything else to cover with the left overs :) my bike mudguards look nice in pale blue with little spots, the only one in the school bike sheds! :rolleyes:
 
Hi folks......Still chipping away at this.....took it onto street for first time in years to just turn around...as can only work on one side at a time! and i wanted to see what it looked like!...and run like and did it stop! ....

it's not far off, but i have said that for years now!

before anyone asks.....its for flipping up the rear number plate for shows...as i hate plates!!!

View attachment 11165

but as is my usual way...a simple idea becomes more involved as i didn't want the plate to show when flat from rear!...so the fuel flap mechanism had to go through the floor....would have been too easy for it to just fit to the floor wouldn't it!!!
