Ive seen it in flesh....depending on weather it pops....problem with candy red is on a dark day looks burgundy, i dont like burgundy....

It has to be red as door shuts engine boot are red and my mates doing it cheap so i dont want to take the P  with a complicated candy 3 stage paint. Its a pearl so metallic red....if its good enough for an F type....its good enough for me....

o0o0o0o some damn fine fellow has given me another Karma point me thinks.....

How can you not like burgundy? what if we "call" it maroon instead haha.

Im sure it will look great.....

Im contemplating having my "manderin orange" with satin additives so its toned down a bit as its an "old" car. Try n give it a bit of patina.

Dunno what to do yet... Those links you sent, Im not sure if they are goos enough. Heat at that area is going to be massive. Anyhoo, one problem first, I have to figure out how to get that turbo in proper position...
