Jazz blue never did it for me , Anthracite would be nice.

How about the Raven blue in a bora?

Update is a bit of a late one but here none the less cheers

Decided to get to grips with plastic welding! so armed with 1 drill bits, a flat head screw driver and a hob i got the running lights going..

[You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]

Also having a bit of an experiment with the A's, thinking of doing something colour wise to either the lips or centres or both... or even just leave them alone! not sure. Leccy tape sparked off some ideas..
Only done black upto now, but i have, light blue, dark blue, red, lime green to try!!

[You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]

Opinions on the A's welcome Smile

If your A's are minters then i would leave them as is mate, they really make your car.

firstly... hi pete mate, long time no see,

i like your borbet A,s silver the way they are, they look well nice,

but if you do decide to colour them, do some "photoshopping" first its loads cheaper,

i personally think they would look cool with the centres "mystic blue" like the vento, but hey thats just me,

nice to catch up some time & have a look at all these things you been up to with the old vento,

Cheers for the comments guys, im very much in 2 minds what to do with them as i change my wheels more than i change my underwear Razz

The borbets are minters yeah, thats whats making the decision hard as im trying to keep an oem theme as much as possible but with some subtle/unique twists!

Seen some siiccck vento's with gold lips but generally on black cars, not blue/purple.. hmmmm.....

Fil, we'll have to catch up definetly!.. il have to have a pop up when i get my engine finished or we'll get together at a DD meet sometime maybe ?? Very Happy

More stancing happening tomorrow as my arches are getting rolled by a certain Mr.Denton of StyleHaus Wink il get pics up ........

Good to meet you today mup! Had a nice day in northampton. Dropped the car off at Dentons at 215 after a mission trying to find it.. left the car with him to roll arches, so went and had a pizza hut then 7 games of pool then i got the call to say 'All done!'....
Ive checked them out and im soooo pleased with the results, steve is a bit of a maestro and i would recommend him to anyone.. real nice guy.
