I thought you might be interested to know that the clem firenza that is currently in my custody is going in for total Strip down and respray.I am keeping her orange as I love the colour.
I will try to load photos of progress but this technical stuff I find difficult.

Good luck with the stripdowm Kevin - glad you are keeping Clemi orange - it is called Tasman orange - I am still still struggling to my Firenza "Flo" back together. Her is an old pic of Clemi with Peggy at an old Drive it Day gathering.

If you have trouble putting pictures up send them to me and I will do it.
This is Flo - she has moved on a bit - rear axle fitted - since the pic

The Singh Brothers, either on the DSG forum on on the Facebook page (and maybe in the VVOC Facebook group too) have done alloy rocker covers. Not sure what their stock is like, they do them in batches. If you're not in any of those groups let me know and I'll try to get some contact details for you.

gorgeous cars but is it Tasmin Orange?

Mine is Tasmin Orange - which seems a whole lot more Dukes of Hazzard if you know what I mean
