Another dumb idea...

 

Was staring at a photo of a flared DR30 for too long...

Started wondering what that black and red two-tone would look like on a 1200...

 

Problem is, the best place to two-tone a 1200 is at the body line. Which is height-wise even with most flares, so you don't really get the humps to break it up. Then remembered about the race cars flares that come about 4-5" above the body line...

So?   ^_^

 

 

 

Next level to this bit would be, instead of the lettering that comes on the DR30...

That says 4 VALVE DOHC RS TURBO,  maybe some gold letters that say LONG LIVE GATO PLANO  :rofl:

Sorry for the bad photo... It's showing the abuse of 35 years stuck to a refer door.

How much were those pans?  I think I might  have to do the Chickenhawk "right" if they are cheap enough.  Wait, is this one of those things we discussed at the shop while my eyes glazed over?

They were $174.70 shipped for both sides.

Probably. Seems to happen every time I start talking about this car, since it's just a lowly sedan and all...   :lol:

Got some material to use for the door panels. Mine are toast, so I'll make some new ones and cover them with this.

Thinking about doing a rear seat delete and make some cover panels for the rear covered in this.

 

And maybe the headliner too.   ^_^
