After much deliberation whether to re-stripe the car in vinyl or paint i took the plunge and went for the paint
a nice shade of Anthracite grey with just a hint of metallic.

10" over the top with a 1.5" gap

2" Rocker stripes with 0.5" gap then a 0.5" pinstripe either side



Big thankyou to Colin at Prestige Coachworks Clacton Essex for doing a little facelift on my 'Stang

Before




After








I'm really pleased with the new look

Looks good Rob.
Been thinking of getting the body re-done on the DLM.
When I have saved enough.
