Painted this for a mate last year

It's a custom colour and is called Cadbury purple metallic. I can't find any of my pictures of it so lifted this for a recent WhatsApp message from him

No Clive.

The way it is in the picture is how it is right now. he is edging closer though. I think he has been fitting the interior. David Wilson has been building a custom loom for it and that has really set things back as its taken ages

At least it’s getting there, sadly the Capri is still awaiting me finding a way to get some paint on it :-( the guy who promised to do it with me has proved more than a little unreliable and I have given up on that front, so progress has been ridiculously slow sadly. Say hello to Carl for me the next time you see him, tell him to drop in when he is passing next.

That's a shame to hear about the delays.

Not seen you on TMF for a long time. Do you still frequent?

Ill probably go down and see him next month so will pass on your message and say hi for you.

 

Cheers

Not been on in ages, the hillclimb mini shell is still sat in a container and I had to sell most of my spares due to losing storage. I think the love has gone on that one unfortunately. I keep looking at minis but prices have gone a bit stupid. I need to sort the Capri out, I think I will just get it in some sort of paint even if it’s a panel at a time and then get using it. But I need decent weather to spray outside so will be next summer at earliest now. Mechanically it’s ready to go.

My old Allegro, after all, who doesn't love a bit of Antique Gold?

Our previous Octavia, in Dynamic blue, a change from the usual grey, silver and black most other Octavia's came in (says the guy who later bought another Octavia in black)

What my family would call 'Invacar Blue'

I'm sure that there's a less PC version of the colour. 

But the 70s can stay away.
