Cracking Sean!

I’m going to have to get myself down to some of the shows to have a look at the cracking vans you guys have been building!

Nice colour match mate, they look like a great fit too. Did they need any modifications to fit?

I like these!

You’ve done a good job getting these smooth and colour coded!

I didn’t think this looked good at all when I saw it in a magazine
Image

So I had to do something about it.
I stripped all that insulation off and cut the bolts off.
Image
Image
Image

Rub it all down with 500 and 1000 sandpaper. Then used 2k primer.
Image

Then I gave it a coat of BG blue and 3 coats of clear lacquer.
Image
Image
Image

Think it looks a lot better now.

It certainly does improve the engine bay!

I’ll add this to my list
