Cool Getting quite rare sight now...

This is my Marea's rebirth, I've owned her from new(April 2000), more to follow as and when.
I've been waiting 5 years to do this due to ill health mainly and lack of funds.
Finally had enough of beeing ill and went for it.















Added headlight brows, not the best pic but you get the idea.



Thank you AUTOGLASS??????

RE:Typical

Cars been sat at home out of the rain, she gets cold you see....????
Went to take her for a spin and check how speed bump friendly the front is and the windscreens got a bloody crack across it from being sat in the garage, anyway went for a drive, crack still the same and not bad over the bumps aslong as I don't go over 5mph.

Mesh ordered for front and rear bumpers, led reversing light just got the rest to do.
Momo Millenium wheel arrived last week just fitted today.

Re: Getting quite rare sight now...

Cheers Rob, glad you like it mate.
Mesh arrived this morning but was wrong size, alot smaller than thought but decided to stick with it.
Got my light covers back today all painted.
Waiting for the painter to redo my tailights and finish the internal plastics of the headlights.

Re: Added headlight brows...

Just got the headlight brows from the painters, a few more bits to be painted up and then do the mesh at the weekend.

Hope you like...

Re: Getting quite rare sight now...

Hellcat this has been along time coming, it should of happend a few years ago.
Don't understand work at the coachworks...???
Its not pampered, its just I like to be different from the crowd.
How many people can honestly say their car is truly unique.
Every panel except for the rear wings, roof and bonnet have been modified and its still way of being finished.
I hope you like it, the wife refuses to go in it now....

Re: Getting quite rare sight now...

This is one GREAT looking car!
Really like what you did: the shaving of the car, the alloys, the exhaust(!!).
That's a lot of love and money you've put into the car!

I can imagine that people would think you work at a paintshop as it costs a lot of money to do a project like this.

On the other hand: you can't buy a new car for the money of a repaint.
I assume your car's bodywork, electrics, drivetrain and engine are in 100% condition??
