Ok here's what you've all been waiting for...sorry it took so long. Tell me what you think. Before anyone asks.....no the colour is NOT Blueprint, it's called Cyprus Blue Metallic and it's off those new Suzuki Ignis's you've probably seen around. Not the wildest colour around but I'm kinda over pearls and all that crap.







For other pictures of the work in progress just browse the files here -

Cheers,
Doug.

woah....man....that looks something special hey.....bugger me!!!! are you still going to sell the wheels? cause i think that would be a bad idea - the car looks perfect! all you need is a single reversed cosworth bonnet vent on the drivers side, to feed cold air into the pod filter that goes straight to the turbo :s6: and a bloody huge polished intercooler poking out the front :s6:

seriously - that colour choice is bloody beautiful!!!! the car looks great!!!!!

Mint! I drove past your place the other day to see if you were there so I could get a look, but the EA wasn't there. Seriously, that is unreal :thup: You took those pics at Swinburne Lilydale, yeah?

thanks for the comments guys. to answer some questions, it cost me $790 all up. $490 for all the paint, primer, thinners, sandpaper etc and $300 for 5hrs in the spray booth. EA-90, as soon as I get some time I'll write up a step by step thingy. Jack, I actually borrowed your E-series archive CD's off Sunny today...it's unbelieveable how much stuff you have on them! Ash, yeah that was taken today at Swinburne right before the security guard cracked it at us for parking on the lawn lol!

That looks great. I saw you at the lights on maroondah highway near Lincoln road on friday night, but I didn't realise it was you. The car looks awesome on the road.
