In your face yellow + white looks fine to me. In my opinion very few cars look good in pale blue, MGA being an rare example which does.

More week 6:-
Not too keen on the mirrors - may have to change these at a later date (see first picture last post)!

Yes I thought that about the wiper motor too, looks more powerful than the petrol engine that will be propelling the thing. May be replacing that too with a more compact unit like that which is used on isettas.

What PCD are the wheels? They look like they are to fit the Bashan Quad hubs?

I can get the hubs, but can not find any wheels to suit.

I am not in possession of the vehicle yet (an know very little of its specifications). Alan Even of Bamby Cars is building this car for me - you would be best to contact him for this information. Sorry I can't be more helpful than that

Went to pistons in the park to day Paul and a mate drove my peel around, I let a few others drive it but I started to attract some odd people who thought it was there right to drive it as others were , but what ever still a good show , the pcd is the same that fits the bashan hubs that your looking for , you will need spacers because it will rub the calliper, these are the ones Ive got , they are about 20quid each , I need 2 more at some point if you want to do a joint order , I'm sure they are shipped in from America

For a small and short show it was good, and from my point of view most enjoyable to see Steve's peel in the plastic. It did steel the show and when I was driving it around it felt like I was a celeb surrounded by Japanese flash happy photographers. One lady who was about to take a shot of a Ferrari caught me out the corner of her eye and aborted the shot to ensure I was not a missed opportunity, it was the Peel she was interested in, she must have used her entire 35mm film getting the car from every possible angle (although It may have been me she was interested in but I guess I'll just never know).
