Are you gonna fit black gutter trims too? Looks good but maybe a bit too much white at the moment?

Been finishing off some things on the car. I Dyed the carpet black. And switched the rear brakes off my grey car with new disks pads and handbrake cables. Also painted innner arches. I fitted Monroe gas Dampers from a capri on the back. The top fitment is perfect but requires a coilover bracket welding onto bottom leaf spring clamp. Fitted a Piper cams timing belt because had small oil leak that contaminated other belt.
Car went through MOT fine, had to adjust handbrake up but othe than that fine. Complimented on the welding and general coniion of car.

Is it just me or is there a small dent in the leading edge of the bonnet?

Other than that, it looks good (although I'm not really a fan of the bonnet)

Damn, white really is the colour for a 300. I think the bonnet would look slightly better with the colours reversed, black in the middle like. Other than that, MEGA-TYTE.

I like the bonnet - but feel that the scheme needs continued elsewhere - perhaps diminishing chevrons up the tailgate ala Mk2 GLT? (I'm biased)
