The White Thing.

Call it "The grey thing" with a subtitle "the not so daily daily" for now... I will come up with a better name later, or someone make a suggestion.

The White Thing.

Postby wide_load » Tue May 04, 2010 5:57 pm

Looking for your guys opinion on the white thing.

Gonna be throwing on some re-finished teardrops and then sourcing rubber bands for them so that I can set the ride height appropriately and try and eliminate any rubbing that may occur due to such appropriate ride height.

The Q is, what colour do I paint the rims?

I was thinking.

1) White w Black drops
2) Black w White drops
3) Something else :P


If someone is board and wants to play with photoshop be my guest :)

Oh yeah... (bad) pic of the beast.

Back in the day I had clear coated semi-polished estorils with black insets. I loved it.

Upgrade your grey matter 'cause one day it may matter.

Don't be in such a hurry to condemn a person because they don't do what you do, or think as you think. There was a time when you didn't know what you know today...

:lol: The van was in the way so I couldn't get a worthy, full shot of the moons in all their glory.... on a side note, they grew on me and I kinda wish there was 4. :D

I would definitely do polished but I don't think after the repairs that I will be able too as filler will be used for the damaged areas.

White w polished tears might work though. Maybe I'll try that combo first.

I think the all black w the tires is too much black... but since I'm painting them I can change em up if I want.

And I'll fix the door handles this week too :P

Oh, and the car now sadly has an exhaust on it. It's amazing how must a stock muffler will quiet down a car. I greatly miss the racket :cry:

Just out of curiosity, does anyone know what happened in the end w this car?

Guy who bought it said he was going to fix is up and make it a daily. Been keeping my eye out but haven't seen it since.

Truly was the most fun car I have ever owned/driven.
