Re: 'A little brake from the norm' 1.1 Sporting

ok so car is being prepped for a new respray - going for a darker metallic silver (i love silver cars lol) brakes are to be changed in the next month - wanna go for a gt brake conversion (unfortuantely missed the set for sale on here but didnt have the cash lol) then some engine tweaks lol but brakes need sorting first.
i purchased a new cd player:

thought was a bargain, not majorly into the whole ICE thing just needed one ASAP so this should be here within the week.

Re: 'A little brake from the norm' 1.1 Sporting

ok, so i started to paint the car today, have done a few light coats - good thing is my orginal paint choice was primer so not much prep was needed lol, atm it needs loads more sanding etc, then a few more coats etc etc
but heres how it looks atm, i went for a slightly darker shade of standard sei grigio and i really like it. this is my second time painting a car so taking my time.
i will be spraying my alloys baby blue when finished too

not really, dont worry i havent nowhere near finished painting etc, im having a little learning process with it as i go, so it will be a slow process - unfortuantely i cant afford a pro paintjob, so i thought id have a stab at it

Sometimes thats the best way to learn.

Are you using an aerosol or gun ? Btw Silver is one of the worst colours !

roller lol :slayer::devil: purely because i have seen some very decent jobs with lots of patience etc, and i have had lots of practise roller painting lol im sanding every 2-3 coats and have been doing my research, so i know it wont be an amazing job, i know i will be pleased that i put alot of hard work in, its changed lots since that pic, and already looks and even colour - like noo obvious marks etc so its coming along nicely and its cost just under £20!!! lol

I saw this car at Wheels Day at Aldershot show a few months back.
I've gotta say the rat look didnt turn me on, but it looks awesome with the black cinq wheels, grey with black bonnet. Primer grey is under rated!

Roller paint jobs rule!!! Iv just done my Cinq satin black with NATO army paint!

Not sure about the baby blue wheels? but give it a go!

thanks man! yeah i liked it like that, but after a while, it looked so 'ratty' i couldnt feel pride in it - like yu do when you have a real nice shiny car (if that makes sense)
