Thank you, yeah I thought the grill had way too much silver on show and i like the look of the magnum twin light grill, all that black etc, so i sort of combined the looks of the two

That's pretty much exactly what I was thinking :) I had also entertained the idea of a brabham style 'over the bonnet' type thing, I have various 'mock ups' in my sketch book, I think i will possibly combine the two styles

Yes very probably, although it may have something to do with the £500 chevette estate rolling shell on ebay at the moment ;)

Good work, liking the look of this.

The black front panel and roof aren't my cup of tea if I'm honest with you, but you definitely need to finish this and maybe then you will be allowed to buy a Chevette. Not yet though! :angrywife:

(no dessert unless you finish your main)

sold to a very nice chap from yorkshire, he'd been looking at a few vivas and decided on mine, he was very interested in the club and all it entails, hopefully he will join up :)

New project on the way, will keep you posted :)
