Orange.

 

I agree....

 

…..Normally, I'd pick clear - but the OEM orange rear lights really suit the car. So you need orange side repeaters to match..:cool:

I have something to say............ It's better to burn out than to fade away..... :tt2:

Anyway, back to today... Car passed. A few issues raised... Near and offside anti roll bar links corroded but not serious.  Read disc worn, pitted or scored but not serious.  Im a

Your car paint really does catch the light well, I agree, if you’re keeping the back lights orange, the sides should match :thumbup1:

When you build a car... any car... you have 3 choices

Cheap, Fast, or Reliable ... now you can only pick 2 of the 3....

If you pick Cheap and Fast it will not be Reliable

If you pick Cheap and Reliable it will not be Fast

If you pick Fast and Reliable it will not be Cheap

Pick your 2 and build your own car.

I finally got my Christmas present today. Really looking forward to fitting it, along with my 3rd break light, as I think it will look great against my refurbed “89 spec lights.

Maybe I'm missing something here but are you putting a 99 spec rear panel on with original rear lights!?

Why would you do that? You have chrome bezels around the reverse lights on the 99-spec centre panel and none on original, it will look completely miss-matched. :confused:

 

Maybe. Let’s see how it goes. :wink:

Orange is back one. I’ve also changed the pin stripes from reflective white to a metallic black. Picture to follow next week. :wink:

 

I forgot to post the picture of the metallic black stripe so here it is...

You can’t really see it in the picture but it’s less offensive than the old stripe.

I had a few hour today on the car.

 

The first job was very easy and very satisfying. New left hand radio surround screw cover got fitted.

Second job was to fit the new passenger side window switch surround as the old one didn’t fit flush to the door card as a result of missing it two front locators.

And the third job was to remove the scratched passenger door glass and replace with good used glass. I haven’t tinted the new glass and think the car looks better for it. What do you guys think?

 

Old with the scratches...

Thanks Andrew. I’ve still not pulled the trigger on that. I was going to ask if you fancy a jolly up to the paint shop when your car is getting worked on and I can get their opinion on the job.

 

Thanks Martin. I did try clear side repeaters but because I prefer the orange rear lights clear repeaters just didn’t look right.

Much better, it really does lift the feel inside the cabin doesn’t it? If you do venture up to Kraftwork, let me know and I’ll pop up.
