Rear View Screen

Posted by Comments Off on Rear View Screen

Decided the boot needed a screen so fitted this so you can now watch the tv while admiring the boot build.

Also changed the ballasts on my HIDs for some new slim line ones and neaten the cables up abit.

Sunroof and Ultras

Posted by Comments Off on Sunroof and Ultras

Finally got a mint set of ultras fitted, after combining three sets and spending over £400…. but there on and they look awesome. Basically it’s 3 sets cut up and plastic welded together, then filled and sanded and the tops painted black so you can’t tell. Then the whole surface was polish with a cutting compound and the surface was prepped the whole thing is then clear coated and baked, they are so SHINY now it’s unreal, an improve on standard ultras I think. Cheers to Dave for his wizardry in taking the time to stitching them all back together.

My old sunroof gave up and started leaking so time for new one it was not removed during the respray as it had been very well sealed the year before we were worried about rippling the roof skin.

The new sunroof is bigger ( 803×462 ) as you can see from the template, I was too scared to cut the roof as I had little go (you can see it on the picture) and the whole roof was bouncing everywhere, so Dave came to the rescue and finished cutting it with air saw.

Camo Build Boot

After spending many hours in Neil Rainger’s Spray booth with gloves and masks this happened, so so pleased with how it turned out. Amazing what you can do when you have am awesome painter like Neil on hand.

It’s being clear coated today then will sit in the oven for a day then it can go in.

Floor Build

Posted by Comments Off on Floor Build

Sadly the car was not finished for ford fair but we did manage to get the floor build finished

Here is the passenger floor well build to house the Audio Control Matrix and Epicentre, which are a line driver and bass enhancer respectively.

Fitted new LED side light bulbs and fixed the HIDs as they developed a strobe affect due to a bad earth.

Tried some harness, to see how they would feel, not only was pain to get in and out of the car they would be a pain to mount correctly also.

Took some quick pictures of the floor builds at night, better ones to come.

I don’t like airbrushing

Posted by Comments Off on I don’t like airbrushing


Well I finally got the boot build back after months of waiting,

and well … I am really disappointed.

The pattern is ok, but the finish is awful, big drops in the lacquer, some parts have gone dull, looks like it has been done with a rattle can and not a professional, not what i was looking forward to.

Apparently will look better sanded down and re lacquered in a spray booth.
