The carpets in mine and upholstry in mine was done by an aircraft upholsterer and all the plastics have been done in black vinyl which looks great

Gee mate; thats very humbling and much appreciated :D I've been told by a few people that it's a far cry from the car I bought almost 3 yrs ago on the 'Australia day' weekend...

The hood emblem guys, looks fine but bloody hard to get it to STAY there at speed :o


It just occurred to me (a few years later!) that I didn't mention that I ALSO did the thermostat neck; (was a good first place to 'learn' the art) but for all the effort (although I don't think they're AS nice), you CAN buy polished ones or chrome ones.

PS; all the bits are STILL almost as shiny ~6 years later; just a little chrome polish would restore them back to 100% :o

As of 4.37pm yesterday, the C4 is officially BACK on full rego and off club - Swapper of Nissan 350Z asked as it'll be easier for he and his wife - He does have cancer; I've been following his facebook, and today he finds out if they chop off his leg (likely) that has 3 tumours in it. Other than that; if they do a further finding, he'll have about 9 months left to live, and if not, then he gets maybe 3 due to his situation...

I've decided (he doesn't know yet) to let him HAVE the personalised plates for no extra - Can't seem to sell them, and std ones are too wide and would look dumb. This way I can tell it's my old car if I see it sometime.

I have the roof back from panelbeaters who had it a month and did NOTHING. I have 3 cartridges of the right adhesive arriving by courier today.
Have painted frame to spiff it up also.
