hey guys, looking for opinions, car comes back from the workshop soon with a complete group A kit and fully fixed...

now im looking to make this into a show car with a bit of power, nothing over the top but nothing not worthy of showing,

im hoping to have it in auto salon round 2 next year, so i need to start work,

i just purchased a bag of perl flakes from america, should have them in a few weeks, they mix with clear coat to give a effect like this



thats the look i wanna go for, what else could i do to pimp the cars exterior out ???

other things ive been thinking of
FULL respray
Black tinted tail lights to match the boot garnish
Lightly tinted headlights
maybe a bonnet scoop

other things i was thinking of was smoothing out the boot garnish because ive got a remote pop lock for the boot,
and NO i dont want to "colour code" my mirrors :p

That pic you posted is of a pearl, not a flake.
I would spray it in straight white tinter on top, HSV Hi Ho Silver (HSV wheel colour) on the bottom, with a silver flake.
The tinted light thing is really a backyard amature thing, not show worthy. You will never see a show car nightshaded up.
Scoops are only good when they serve a purpose.
On such a short time frame you would want the kit on and all panel gaps correct, painted and new rims. Then work on the interior, custom touches, retrim and extra bolstering, etc.
Finally you wont get the engine swapped in this amount of time so keep the 6 and just tidy/detail it all.
Ill see ya there!!
