    hey all

    I've been slowly and rather patiently been fixing up the coupe, and its basically at a point between being sprayed and not.

    anyway, had a plan...



    Been thinking of making up some arches similar to these, and then finishing the lot off with a matte black? its brilliant red at the mo but think matte black would look good in a trackcar kinda way?

    Coupled with arch extensions and some anthracite rims I think it'd look quite sweet.

    Thats my idea, plus the paint would be cheap as two pack works out £100 a litre

    Thats spooky , i started a thread other day to ask where i might find that kit in the UK as id seen it for sale in the states. After seeing the kit i shut my eyes and imagined it without the big spoiler and with gloss black paint . You know what i was spot on after seeing this picture.
    My thread , click here

    As for yer matt black idea , sounds awesome man . I love the idea of a matt black car but i have been told the car has to be flawless before paint .
    I am almost tempted to do my Capri in matt black as it is fully stripped and on a spit i can put that extra bit of effort into it .

    It was your thread I replied to. The kit is rather expensive (£1k+)..

    So my idea was to make some extensions and arches myself. Done similar things before, and the cars off the road at the mo so should be acheivable. Bit of fibreglass, filler, primer and cellulose matt black and should be achievable.

    Without any spoiler whatsoever, and nice fat arches should look pimp

    Yeh mate youre well right . If my garage was a bit wider i may consider it for my car when it goes of the road in the summer.

    I'm lucky enough to have enough garage space for about 20 cars, as i have outbuildings.

    however, im unlucky enough to have a parent that goes mental if theres more than one in there at a time. lol

    what about a matt black vinyl covering? you can always put the car back to its original colour then if you want to sell etc

    Yeh i read into that recently , is there a rough cost for it yet. And are there plenty of UK installers.
