Re: Sparx01 build dairy

Cheers Guys,

Just got in from work having a quick browse through the forum and spotted the previous image of the blue 360 car and panicked because it looks a lot darker than the blu abu dhabi pearl (2013 colour). Looking at the headlights that are sprayed, it does look more similar

Looking good JD, Cheers.

Re: Sparx01 build dairy

I popped over to JD's on weds to finalise the car colour and for an update or two.

After a quick visit to the paint suppliers and looking at a lot of different shades of blues, we finally found the one. It is a pearlescent blue instead of metallic just like the cars in the photos.

 As usual, JD was such a nice guy, very welcoming and very knowledgeable.  We went for a bit of lunch down the local and I would definitely recommend the steak.

Cheers JD for a great day.
Tone

Re: Sparx01 build dairy

I can't wait to see this colour on the car. She is going to be stunning
No worries about the lights JD, they just looked different in the picture to what I had. Didn't know that were still available to buy
As always great work

Can I ask about the wiper fault, my wiper (406 coupe) doesn't stop at the correct return (resting) position, am looking for clues.

Cheers
