looks like it almost fits in the back of the Ford. This thing is just silly, yet addictive to watch the transformation.

Love this build! Just wish you went a different colour after going through all that prep work! Something more stand-out-ish

cam tuxedo is a solid black, if its got metallic in it it was made wrong, my guess is they made phantom of vx onwards.

btw love it, i know where a factory black roller is on b45's if you want a second or parts, has light damage on one side

yeh? what is it SL,exec? i used the tuxedo black paint code from this site, but from what i remember a black vl looking like, it didnt look like that!

still its an awesome colour, im happy with it.

you wouldnt want to buff the car for me would ya? my painter mate who did my wagon cant do it till the 25th, and i dont trust myself doing it with a machine. I did a bit by hand but fark that, itll take me 3 months to finish it.

kinda sucks cos ive already rubbed most of it back with 2000, so ive gotta drive it around like that untill it gets finished.

bonnet, roof, rear 1/4's and half the front 1/4's. its not a full job only the main flat areas cos ive rubbed it back with 2000wet to get the dust off.

if you can that would be awesome cos i cant get it done for atleast 3 weeks from my mate or a month + at the shops ive gone to.

cashmoneynoreceipt ofcourse
