Re: My 1973 XB coupe

The colour is called tropic gold... more like baby poo.
And i have a GT bonnet... its going on in a couple months when its getting resprayed (different colour) and panelbeated.

Re: My 1973 XB coupe

Love the 10's on the rear - really fills it out! Any difference in the handling??
Have you got your colour picked out??

Re: My 1973 XB coupe

No all one colour, i'm very set on that .... I will tell you one colour though... you might have seen it it's a honda jazz colour ... looks like blueprint but darker... awesome colour. Its such a hard choice ... everyone has different opinions

Re: My 1973 XB coupe

I know the colour you mean-that would look sweet! But then, just about any colour would suit...

What about the interior?
