Good work, looks like you've been very busy. thumb

I like the B pillar respray you did in-situ, I wish I'd done that instead of removing half the interior to get the damn pillar covers off!

The wheel covering cost £130.00 and postage was £10.00 Sam. I bought the wheel to be covered from Steve_S on the forum for £25.00. It's really nice to hold, looking forward to getting it fitted.

I will also get the graphite grey roof done early next year. Decided to get her kitted up first though.

I'll be selling my old wheel for £25.00 at the end of the week too wink

more good work done buddy!!
I have a spare gearbox too, it's for sale but if it doesn't sell i will keep it as a spare too.
Also I have a spare centre console i'm going to be painting but haven't decided yet to go porto blue or piano black, the jury is out!!

Mmmm, I went colour coded as it match's the dash strip: and continues the colour theme downward.

Now, as for yours, it is definitely different (engine bay) maybe this theme could move to the interior? New wheel from Trim deluxe with orange inserts/orange stitching and maybe orange gaiters and a black leather gear knob with orange embroidery, with a piano black dash, would look very nice .... I'm going on a bit now aren't I ... lol

LOL I think that maybe too!! garish for the interior!!!
I have a new gear gaitor and handbrake gaitor to fit in black leather with pale blue stitching and eventually would like to get a black leather interior retrim to match.
I'm steering back towards porto again at the moment

All I have done is top up the screen wash with some proper screen wash and wash it, its just to cold to get on with anything. I have furby to finish (waiting on cable) and joes rocker cover to do. with the temp dropping so low its imposable to get any heat in to the shed so painting is out of the question frown

The next improvement to the bee will be some heated seats thumb
