Black Betty

Welcome to Black Betty, a cracking little 500 Twinair 85.

So, what plans?

Well, nothing to grandeur to start with, since this will be my first venture into anything like this.

I have painted the calipers orange which makes them stand out nicely inside the black alloys. I thought that as the calipers were orange, how about we make some extra orange details on the car, so onto eBay and I found a boot handle for 30 quid, brought a roll of sticky stuff and well I was quite pleased with the result.

Not too bad for near on 2 hours of stretching and heating, no air bubbles, no crinkles, so, out with the socket set and off to the car, and here is where my bull in a china shop method to projects comes true.

Yeah horribad clash against the number plate, burh, taken back off and matt gray back on.

So next plan is to go with a carbon wrap, do the B pillars as well as they are scratched pretty bad, and may go for the mirrors too.

After that, a lowering project would be interesting, to get her stance down a bit at the rear maybe, if I am feeling brave enough to take spanners to the actual mechanics of the car.

Was sorry I couldn't make it down to Edinburgh last night as I could have seen your work in the metal so to speak. Looking forward to more updates though
