eek 'Sparkly' Fairlane

I have just packed the boot of the Fairlane full of sparkles, glue, tins of paint, brushes, showbags for the kids involved and have put the 'teeny bop' music into the stereo ready for the big event tomorrow.

Couldn't help thinking how nice the car was as I packed it all in...

The school kids and I will have fun decorating it though and the media are lined up for interviews already.

If anyone is in the Geelong area over the next week the finished car will be on display at the FDC. If you are in Geelong tomorrow (26th October) we will be painting the car outside the Performing Arts Centre, opposite the Geelong Library.

Expect some before, during and after pics to be posted onto this thread in the near future.

Hehe if it becomes that popular Ford could introduce a new paint colour called "Sparkle Mica" and have it on the Xr and T Series range, beats the Holden Yellow any day. :s1 :s1

el2xr8, your new paint scheme is waiting...
