Spotty the CDx
« on: April 06, 2013, 06:22:45 PM »
Finally got round to taking a few pics








Whys it called Spotty?
Really need to get the paint sorted




Got this to get fitted this afternoon

Using it as a daily right now, plan is to take it off the road and sort all the little niggles out soon.
Heater control actually decided to work today but then stopped again and is now stuck on cold LOL

The proper colour for a gentleman's carriage too ;)

have you tried T-CUT on the freckles ? or is the lacquer still over them ?
arches look great ,odd the mirrors are not colour coded  ???
what's the condition of your original wheel ? for sale ? mines got the 1 o'clock hole in the leather  :'(
If the above post contains spelling mistakes / grammatical errors / poor use of the quote function / a very weak retort, or is generally shyte; it's because I'm feked on a cocktail of drugs,homebrew and carb cleaner.sorry

Looks very nice for a J reg with no visible rust issues. Look after those sidemembers front & rear before they rust through.
