Sorry to spoil the fun, but it is a low-rider because it doesn't have any suspension !

I removed all the suspension/back axle and fitted a pair of spare training arms with a curtain rail where the torsion bars should be - not sure whether the toe-in is correct though ....

Front suspension has springs but no damper units , so lots of negative camber

Maybe I should keep the "look" ?

Getting exciting .... top photo is the 2nd 2-pack primer, different colour to the first so once it has been flatted again it will show up any imperfections (apparently !) and then the second is the repainted dash. I found this colour on the dash frame and have kept it for the dash because it looks great with the leather interior

The main frame has been painted today, first the black and then once I have finally decided on the "insert" colour we can finish it off. Hopefully photos next week once it has been unmasked

So finally - body painted

I have used the colour we found behind the dash for the dash and the lower body. Final decision is whether to paint the wings black or "red" ??

Dog and Jason after a 3 am finish ! Dog (on the left) said that he didn't like this photo because he hadn't had time to do his hair

That's a lovely colour Simon. And black wings would go quite well I would have thought.

And the vote of the Belgian jury is 12 points for black wings!
(but off course the decision is yours and I'll love it either way!)

Simon, another triumph for you and Dog!!! I agree that black wings are the better option. I think that is unanimous isn't it?

Looks fantastic in that colour combination.
Is Dog even aware of his online 'LEGEND' status Huh?  Grin
 
Well done, Simon !!

A couple of photos with the doors fitted and now flatted and polished - now it shines !

I asked Dog to spray some colour on one of the rear wings whilst he had paint in the gun - so not fully prepped etc - just to get an idea of the red against the body ..... we'll see !

The engine is ready to fit, but I want to do some part fitting before it goes in

Finally the new badge for the grill - I have been looking for a HiFi badge for a long time and think it will fit the Cabrio nicely
