Loving that... Bandit

Have you thought about some custom (orange) seatbelts or somehow incorporating the colour into the interior for added "wow"...

I had contemplated body coloured calipers but after a photoshop, decided it would be OTT. Yes - belts are the only thing I'd consider.. would tie in well with the needles on the dials too... maybe once the piggybank has recovered. Which may take years Surprised.

Indeed - yesterday was a big day! Nervousness and excitement in equal measures. Difficult to describe, given I knew exactly what to expect Laughing.



Before collection, the final fitting took place during the past week:







...and a few quick phone pics once we reached home :







The final photo is probably the most accurate in terms of colour representation Cool.

About 50-60 dead bugs splattered on bumper and glass already, difficult to see so soon, yet inevitable what.

Now to use and enjoy the car Smile.

Awesome... and the splits certainly add to the aesthetic drama. Cool

A good photograper and a great location beckon to make us even more envious... Wink

Think it was Ty at Riviera?

Chet - it looks stunning. Absolutely love it, and well done for the inspired colour choice. I think matching seat belts would be fab...am contemplating either yellow or red seat belts on mine to add a splash of colour to the drab grey 90s interior. Could paint the hardbacks too... Question

That looks stunning.

As the interior was retrimmed not too many miles ago, I imagine it is like a new car.

Are you leaving the paint as is, or thinking about some sort of paint protection?
