Thanks man , yea this is just the base so its a litte lighter grey more of silver in it so the paint job gets the metalic look...

TO be honest with you im fed up of this painter man hes taking to dam long its been 4 weeks now. Hopefully this week it should be done.
Looking at the way your guys are doing the paint job ticks me off even more lol

Make sure you get him to mask the exterior properly as there is always a chance of getting overspray on the exterior whilst spraying the interior of the tub.

Like the colour.

Question ?

I plan on not having the doors on for some time and want to know if i lower the windshield on the bonnet what mods will be required.

There are no clips in to hold the windshield up , will this be a easy install?
Also the classic has rubber bushs on the bonnet when the windshield is down. I dont want to do this is it possible to have the bushes fit on the windshield directly?
Also when down i will need to make a provisions to tie the windshild down any ides for this.

@David check the wheel rim profile, the size will be etched somewhere close to the valve stem area
