Golden colour ain´t bad either. The figure of your wheels is not the easiest to do paint job, but they look good though. If you end up painting I think sand or soda blasting would be the easiest way to get rid of an old paint. Of course sand blasting makes rought surface. Don´t have experience of soda blasting, but have heard it´s an option to do it well.

Personally I like to combine wheel colours somehow to car´s colour (haven´t done it yet to my summer wheels tho). If you cover bonnet and roof black, I think wheels could be black/red combo, but it´s you´re business to decide of course :). Maybe center and lip section would be the best parts to make colour tricks, photoshopping would show nice different variations (I´m not good at photoshopping).

Some guys have done bonnet/roof black by sticker covering.
i know thats what im worried about with regard to painting, but the photos make them look good... there really not lots of scuffs from previous owner it like my car lots of people have said it looks mint but its the same as most micras its age dents and marks in the paint i did consider a new top coat paint job but not 100% on whats a good price as it not my strong point i just about get by... because i want to stick with the colour as i like it, but get the roof and bonnet finished in black with at least 3 coats of clear to make it nice and shiny (rough price anyone????)
black wheels are what i was going to go for but then lots of people say they like the black.
ill have a go at photo shopping some.

I work in Gerrards Cross and there's a P reg K11 with the last three letters 'PRO' in the same colour red as yours kicking around every now and then. I actually genuinely considered asking if it was you until I saw you'd done some mods to yours.
ive seen P942 PRO in norwich same colour and spec so most of them im guessing were made around the same time as mine.
good call on checking mine for mods noone likes to ask and then walk away feeling like an idiot....

Bad news... Fuse box is ####ed it seems butchering off the plastic clip on the headlight can cause damage to fuses due to shorting out ect... Well my fuse was replaced badly and has now melted the fuse holder and box on the right headlight in other words Millie is poorly... Sad sad day.

any pics of the leccy windows ;) You thought about lowering?
not going to bother with pics of the widows mate everyones seen them... lowering? ive dropped it 35mm but did look into 50mm springs as cutting them is a no go because ill #### it up... need a panhard rod too :confused: did think about the matiz set up but again the thought of chopping and changing stuff scares me haha
i dont know enough about all the ways to lower... and the wheels ive got are wide and do poke out the front slightly ;) so cant go too low without camber...

ok guys not posted any info lately on my super s kit so kinda goes like this...
Started with this bought from the bay :)


Sanding filling priming came next...

Yes thats an aerosol... all i can afford but will do my best.

Added colour and laquer yh its a rattler again but good quality stuff :)

All smoothed too ;)

Lost the grooves in the bumper and smoothed them out because i think it looks better :)

Fitted DRLs :p

AND FINALLY THE FINISHED FRONT....


Does this pass everyones approval... is it worthy of the MSC logo to its name?
Tomo will be starting the rear super s bumper all again to be smoothed and then hopefully will fit the lot too...
not bad for a rattle can hey... :p

Are you talking about that chrome bit inside the fog lamps? (any pics?)

I have a couple smashed lamps but there are parts on it that you can use?

Yh the chrome bit has melted on the passenger one and burnt out... Both the glass is all good as you can see, erm pic there's one further up in blog if you can zoom in on it when I bought it...
Would it be possible to remove the glass the same as a headlight? And put it on a good one of yours? I did put a posting on the wanted section but no such luck...

Looking good.
You might be able to bodge the dodgy fog reflector up with some silver foil tape to get it working..
