E38 war stripes

Post by Drew » Sat Jun 08, 2019 1:58 pm

A second thread in a week from me in a week!

Once I've got the gearbox sorted I'm going to get a few paint niggles sorted, and the wheels done. And the more I think about it I want the front splitter wording and full striping done at the same time. My B12 is Orient blue so I think either silver or gold decals would work. Silver is going to be a bit more tasteful and refined, but I am drawn to the full blingy gold 90s-ness (her indoors will hate it :lol: )

Thoughts?

Go silver Drew; as you say tasteful and refined :wink:

There are so few B12's on the road and mine has gold so get silver on yours for a contrast when we get them together :D

And use Simon, without a doubt.

Am still thinking gold, always difficult to be certain, but Kevin's E38 looks striking to say the least. Have dropped a note to Simon.
Very excited!

Dropping the car off at Stephens next week to get the auto box rebuilt. It's going to be an expensive summer. The CSL has an over-fuelling issue to be sorted too....
:boohoo :D

Does anyone have a contact for Simon (spa69)?

I've dropped him a pm but it's still in my outbox, not read. Guess he's a busy chap

Going gold, 70% sure I think, something of the the JPS F1 cars, albeit on a blue 7er, not a black racing Lotus....

And in other news, B12 currently on the ramps at Stephens for a full trans rebuild. Over the past year I've also been tidying up many other small niggles so it's all coming together now.
