Default Finally finished

I can finally say the car is finished. I had it registered in 2006 but then pulled it to bits and did a lot more work before I got it painted. Anyway I know some people will find the colour a bit radical but I love it.

Nice and shiny. Looks smooth. I like the way the wire wheels light it up.
Am I seeing a S/S cover over your chassis rail under the car? I won't have side pipes for quite a while and was wondering what I could do to cover the rail. Without sidepipes it sticks out like a 3rd nut on a greyhound.

What is that word "finished"? I can't find it in the Cobra build dictionary!

Well done Cameron, the color is what you wanted, and that is all that matters.
The fun of building a car is building it to be YOUR car.

Default Thanks

Thanks everybody,

Outwest34au: Yes, I like you comment about the 3rd nut. If you dont have side exhausts on a Drb then the riverts look a bit average. Its actually polished Aluiminium. 50mm x 50mm L bracket. Worked out at reasonable cost and I figured if I did not like it polished then I could just paint it the same colour as the car. Its secured with 4 rivnuts underneath.

CHOICE.
That's a real cool effective result done simply. Looked at mine long and hard today thinking how you did it, S/S wasn't going to be easy here but angle Ally can be got from mitre 11. At $8 or so a length (side) you can toss it if it gets too stone chipped. I like ideas to feed off, thank you.
