very nice mate, all id do now is maybe black badges on the back, paint side rubstrip, maybe get black/original sideskirts and leave the splitters black as imo you dont want to go too colourcoded or itll look like youve just taped up the windows and blown over the whole car with a respray..

when you pain the bumper rubbing stripes on mk1s it looks like you had black bumpers and painted them to match but couldn't be arsed to mask off the rubbing strip looks much better when they look like they were made like that even thou they were

I personally think it looks better with them black unless of course you remove the side rubbing stripes in which case it might work well

Looking good as always adam (y)

(The car that is:p ) I likethe shop of what its to look like, i'd leave all the washers black, but the rest of he colour coding is spot on (y) Not sure what i'd do with the side strips though, your car suits them, but they look strange in black now, id try and colour code them personally. Might be a pain but would be worth it Imo

Stil one of the nicest mk'1's on the forum. Didn't you have a smash not too long back?
