XBGT challenge

Ive got a pic of a car that Id like to see changed.

I would like the wing removed. The boot lip that is highlight color (mulbury) changed to body color (sandstone biege). And the bumper bar changed to body color (sandstone biege).

Basically remove the wind and change the rest of the scheme to normal GT color scheme. I am trying to work out how I want the gt to look eventually.

Re: XBGT challenge

No offence, but that xb could look a sh#@ load better with the paint changed around a bit... and without the louvers!

Would love to have a go maybe latter today.

Re: XBGT challenge

Yeah, change the whole car to mulberry instead :D Metallic Mulberry is far better than sandstone beige imo.

Re: XBGT challenge

lmao. I am not about to change a factory color on a genuine matching number GT hardtop because someone likes mulbury. The sandstone biege xb is a rare beast. Being one of only 9 hardtops GT's built in this color and only one of 30 odd xbgt's built in this color I think I will be leaving it its factory color.

Im just interested in getting it back to original paint scheme. 5.0Fairlane, I think the louvres look good.

5.0fairlane.

My petrol cap is now mulbury. I know you like mulbury but geez. I was going to leave the highlight section on the back within the mulbury, gold.

Re: XBGT challenge

Second pic looks good. Looks like I might need to buy something fluffy to hang from the aerial and get some fluffy dice.

Re: XBGT challenge

That was blueraven who suggested mulbury...

As for the Petrol cap. Arent GT' supposed to be colour coded, chrome sticks out like dogs balls. And GOLD! where does gold fit in with a sandstone and mulbury colour sheme. You want Sandstone - mulbury - chrome - gold and black, what are you painting, a car or a rainbow. And the fluffy dice, I think the louver are enough just quietly...

Re: XBGT challenge

Don't get me wrong, I don't have anything against louvers, I'm sure some louvers are very nice....
But the XB has one of the best designed and most unique rear windows of any car, and to cover it up with a tacky bolton plastic fantastic covers, just spoils the look of what is argueably the best looking 'Muscle Car' in Australias history.
But hey, that's just me.
