Talking The story now, and as it continues

EDIT Adding this photo from 4/5/2013, and removing all other pics from this first post to remove the 'ugly' ones of my car from its thumbnail Haha. I'll repost this "1st" post later on




1st Photo courtesy of @benny279. Cheers pal!

EDIT 2: Decided not to repost, did do, but it looked odd. So plain deleted. Old naff standard 1.4 GP Sound on steel trims anyway Not missing much, but the progression can still be seen.

Re: The story now, and as it continues

I'm tempted to red calipers, but i like them silver also, although that clashes with my white/black(subtle)red theme. I suppose red would mask the rust on the fronts haha

The rears are painted black, just remembered. Albeit they could do with another coat of hammerite soon, as i only did one initially and its looking a little patchy up close.

Coilovers, hmmmm. That unfortunately is a cost i can't justify spending at the minute

Going to sand it, prime it and get it sprayed black again. Only colour to go really in my opinion. I'm toying with the idea of a subtle hint of red on it somewhere, but unsure on quite how to go about this.

Re: The story now, and as it continues

Like this idea. Might sound daft, but would a spray can of red be suitable to do the wing mirrors with?

Re: The story now, and as it continues

Re: The story now, and as it continues

well not got or ever had a grande but i would guess they have clip on cups on them. So either whip it off, prep it, prime it, spray them red, wet sand them, and then lacquer them..

OR

Go to scrappies and get some red ones off a red grande.

Re: The story now, and as it continues

How you going to fit the switch for the fogs? I wouldn't mind getting fogs for mine. Bit I'd want the switch in its proper location above the rear fog light button, can that be done aftermarket?
