The Mrs wants to go black, I would prefer to go white or maybe a charcoal/carbon type finish?

We will wait and see prolly also find out who wears the pants then too

I will have more pics on Thursday as we will be going for a bopeep then ourselves.

Orange looks good with the black stripe, matches the black grille, and looks even better with a front bumper Mitch

Alright, colours of the stripe have been agreed and the designer is currently putting the ideas together. I just have to wait for a full side on shot of the 68 in Orange so we can photoshop the design.

Old School Retro is the theme....

Hopefully you guys will like it..

By the way, Clayton emailed last night:

Ok update on the Jaffa mobile!!
I spent all day wet rubbing the hanging panels and then stayed back and painted them all tonight. I have taken no pics as I will in the morning and I'm also knackered! When I left the panels looked great and I'm sure you will be impressed.
Hamish proofcoated the entire underneath of the shell for me today and tommorow I will be rubbing it down and if I'm quick enough will paint it late in the arvo, we will see what happens.

See you thursday!!
Mitch

Can't wait to see the photos Mitch.
BTW, the main thing is that you like it, you're the one who has to live with it.

Well, it may not be painted but the hanging panels sure are looking nice in Blood Orange.

Clayton didn't get a chance to paint the shell and he doesn't want to rush the paint job, so he's pretty sure he will get to it on Saturday night.

Sorry but the pics are only mobile phone pics.









I think the glare was a bit to much for Clayton, I have 2 pics with him holding the spoiler in the sun and he has his eyes closed in both. Hope he doesn't paint with them closed as well


Wheels are back on, ready to push into the booth and re-wet rub and paint.


Once painted the engine bay and underside as well as the interior will cop a coat of Satin Black and the dash and rear inner window trim panels will be painted gloss black.
