Mick Hope you finally took the plunge. It will look epic. But make sure that Kitchen is done first though.

Will it be back for the Yorkshire meet :clap: :dance:

Life's all about compromises and wishful deals....

My wife does the compromising and I make wishful deals .... Ha Ha .

Yes, the plan is that the first major change will be completed and ready for the Yorkshire Meeting, unfortunately the next stage will be after both Yorkshire and Euro meet, but ready for the Pug Fest and French car show. Yeah...

The new kitchen is bought and paid for and almost ready to install, so everyone's happy.

Well guys since some of you are so switched on with the new look on the street, I thought I would share a glimpse of what I've chosen for my wrap, now you have to use your imagination here, but I'm sure you'll manage..

And I might have found your camouflaged car Pete..

Thanks M.

My first ever company car was a Fiat 128cl special. It did go well, but the bottom of both doors went rusty round about 6 months old :lol:

Mind you, I didn’t really see it very often, it spent most of its life in the garage :eusa-whistle:

Sadly, first hand experience, also. :(
In about 1980, I had a superb Mirafiori 131 Sport, that was a fun car. :clap:
Whilst performance, handling and comfort were exceptional, the body shell was not, and started to rot after a silly short time. :thumbdown:
So got rid. :(

So, I hope you like and if you are wondering what the colour is called - it's Gloss Roaring Thunder by Avery.

Thanks... and Cheers :beer: More pics in the Yorkshire meeting post.

Thanks Stewart !

Though I have registered the change with my insurance ( most important ), I have and will not be changing the colour on the reg doc V5. This is because it will then show as having a colour change on the HPi check and people will think it's been in a crash or something, when it clearly hasn't. Once I get fed up or want another colour, then I'll just peel it off and hey Tesco ( updated for 21st century ) it's white again.

Glad you like it. It is one of those that you really must see to fully appreciate the colours morphing from blue / purple / gold / copper / orange and even pink so I'm told !!

Cheers M. :beer:

It’s true. You have to really see it in the flesh to appreciate all its qualities and constantly changing colours from every different angle you look at it. Photos don’t do it justice

Thanks Renegade79,

It certainly was and though I did it for myself, I feel very humble that those who have seen it and photos, say it looks nice. It is always a bonus when the comments coming back are positive.

I changed my mind at the last minute from another colour changing wrap which was my favourite choice for months, and when you have a swatch 2" x 3" it is very hard to imagine on the car, especially the Z with all it's curves.

Thanks Again :thumbup:
