after seeing some of the sweet looking cars on this site, I thought it would be a fun and friendly idea for all of us to post a picture or two of our wonderful Sweedish vehicles. Please feel free to post any type of pick wheter it's the interior, or the engine bay, even throw in a home video if you feel up to it. Have fun!

OK here goes..

Carbonating my intriorating:



Instead of going fully carbon I decided to keep the wood but update it with a bit of carbon around the main central instruments...very time consuming to cut the details out....also did the switches and the ignition centre etc.

Do you have an account with the likes of www.photobucket.com ? It's free for a basic account and easy enough for me to use!

I just signed up with photo bucket so hopefully I'll have some pics soon. So far I like the cars I've seen, you can't go wrong with CF, or jet black.

First, sorry for the crappy quality. I took these on a whim tonight so she's not washed.

I debadged, painted and rebadged.



I'm doing the engine bay a little bit at a time. Here it is so far. I wanted to see how well the paint did on the oil dip cap before I painted the rest of the caps. It's holding up well so I'll do the rest this weekend.



Finally, here's the results of painting the bezels of the headlights, painting the interior of the corners as well as removing the yellow lense and my grill addition too.



It's a work in progress but I am liking it so far.

Front calipers are APRacing CP5200 forged alloy 4 pots with 330mm rotors; rears are stock with a coat of caliper paint.
