    Australian 1600

    I have posted a few photos and video of the old girl previously but thought I better start a new thread for the respray.

    Not quite a build thread more a respray/freshen up.

    Previously as purchased (ex rally).

    Now with bare metal rub back and a coat of putty I have 30+ hours of rubbing back before the topcoat in 2 weeks(hopefully). It certainly isn't a show car but will tick all the boxes for looking good on the track. Going for a BRE colour scheme, will be the only one in Tasmania thats for sure.

    It's cool to see another sedan restoration. I need to get busy with mine. Saving money right now.

    Finally finally finally. After many months of spray booth delays I finally have a top coat on the old girl. Still waiting for some racing stripes and stickers and get my whhels sorted but at least I have a car ready for a race meet in October. Will post some more photos as they happen.

    THOUGHTS PLEASE:

    Playing around with some black plastic, obviously will fix up the letter spacing but tell me what you think of the black on white.

    Finally off and racing. Baskerville raceway Historic meet 2011. Only racing in a timed event rather than an out and out race but with 18 cars on the track at once there was still some fun to be had, and what fun it was. Will hopefully post some more if they become available. (didnt pull off the BRE paint scheme as I had earlier hoped but still looks Ok).
