I like it.

Matt black please. :cool:

I've worked in a lot of paintshops and matt black was always on the go.

If black becomes the group choice then a cheque for 70 English pounds will be in the post. ;)

denmaster,
Just been closely examining your pics @ oliveoyl. :cool:
Do you think your man could take a grinder to the weld joints to tidy them up a bit?
I know the brace will very rarely be seen but when it is seen it's surely going to attract a few comments.
Thanks.

looks pretty good, definitely count me in no matter the color... though I would also prefer black if we are making a choice.

Hello all,

Will get them to grind down the welds a little. I personally like the little beads, but if thats what you guys want, thats find with me. Not sure if they'll charge more for the bit of extra effort though :eek: I hope not.

Colourwise, it looks like everyone wants black - I'll have a chat to the powdercoater... About the matt black though, if I am not mistaken you can't powdercoat in a matt colour, it generally turns out shiny. It would be matt after acouple of weeks under there anyway? :D

Confirmed interests:

Only three to go before we've made the minimum quantity. w00t! :)

Is there any way I could get it in red...? Even if I have to wait a little bit longer. I kinda have a red theme goin on my car, and I think that would look pretty cool in red underneath the car.

Looks excellent and you have worked very hard on this, the project and the thread, top man!:cool:

Can you advise if there is any restriction after fitting in getting to the sump plug, as you know we all change our oil on a weekly basis :p

Matt finish in powder will not be a problem ;)

Okay all, have spoken to the guys again, some quick updates:

1) welds can be ground down a little to neaten no problems here..
2) he doesn't do powder coating in matt black. The best he can do is gloss black. Gloss silver and gloss red are fine, but for matt black he advises that perhaps regular automotive paint may be a cheap and quick alternative, albeit not as lasting. In my opinion components under the chassis should be powdercoated, because theres all sorts of horrible stuff under there...
3) access to the oil drain is definitely not impeded. I change oil daily not weekly, and it was very important to me as a design point... :)

Can we have the confirmed interests and colours please?

changing my mind - I agree powder coating is better for undercar objects...

I will take any color... either it will look factory (which is cool), or it will look aftermarket (which is also cool). Let me know about the braces when you get them, I wouldn't mind having a matching set of hardware!
