Re: 340 16v Project C208 CTR *PIC HEAVY* UD 26/05/09 Assembly!!

I cant mirror on the roof and follow it down as the black is in the middle at the back, plan is when the grill is on with painted surround it will follow down the bonnet to mate the bumper.

Dude, that front end looks mean as a scotsman with the grille and clusters fitted. Could really be the coolest looking 340 out there now. Surely you can't still be looking to sell it?
What have you robbed from the grey car to put on the White dude?
I can't seem to spot anything.

This car is only to enable me to work on the grey car, i just wanted to make it look tidy. I am only using spare parts after all. I pinched the rad from the grey car as i have a new one at my parents.

They look good on the grey car, but on the white one they just look properly at home.

Keep up the work, what brakes are they, your "special" mods edition?

I really think the compos go better on the grey. Makes them stand out more with the contrast in colour and all.
I recon black wheels would kill on the white car. Photoshop anyone?

Photoshop done: black wheels idea got killed off.. :P

It's allready got an offset numberplate, so why not go down the JDM road? You know a JDM 340 would look amazing next to my Supra.. :)

This car is getting some gunmetal colouredalloys anyway. The prob with the comps on the car is it shows up how cream a shade of white the car is.
