Pedro,

At least you can now see what you have to do, rather than missing anything that may raise it's ugly head later. Keep us informed of the progress as you repace the rusty missing bits.

Hi Pedro

One day at a time - with everything !  Slowly but surely it will all come together just fine.

For want of a better analogy - i'ts just like your car, until you got it back from the sandblasters you didn't know what needed to be done and how to tackle it! 

Really good to see the photos!  Smiley

These are my ideas for colour schemes, thanks again Dean for doing the photoshop work and enabling me to see what they look like out of my head Wink, it definately made it easier to choose after you gave me a few options to pick from Cool



I really like this one



But I'm pretty sure I'm going to go with this one.

Hi Pedro

As much as I like the black, I really do like the bluple (blue/purple). It'll be a knock out.   Great work Dean!   Cheesy

Oh and A+ for getting your update in without needing a reminder - especially given the week you've had!  Smiley

i reckon youve made the right choice to mate. the burple ( even the new commodore purple but deeper)  if picked right with a really 'pure' silver will work nicely.....

all in good time mate..

Black and silver for sure, it also disguises the rear side glass rubbers that break up the look of the side of the car Shocked.

Yeah i know what you mean about the window rubbers Glenn, how about blurple so dark it's nearly black, then i could have both and i wouldn't have to choose Cool, Dean, i was planning on using the dunnydoor silver, the same as on Mez's VT, it's really good at not showing the dirt Wink

actually i was thinking the late model purple over gold base but a lot deeper. i know PPG do some very nice deep purples.
but as you said pedro, you'd want something that will only show colour coming through in a highlight like off the tailight ridge line and subtle lines on the back doors..
but the crummydore silver is nice but check out the mercedes silvers, youd want to go with something really pure in my opinion Wink

but it was difficult to show that in a small file size and without knowing what your  computer screen looks like. and i wasnt sure what the rear rubber surrounds were like on the wagon..

stinky that is your wagon i used actually, as it was the cleanest and brightest pic i could find.....hope you dont mind mate Cheesy Cheesy Cheesy

That's torn it, now I know I am off to the lawyers Tuesday morning  Tongue  Grin
Never would have picked it, but now you say that I recognise it from the weird shape of the lower quarter panel under the bumper.

Either colour scheme will look great, being a fan of purple I would probably lean towards that one though Smiley. What do you plan on doing for wheels?

Hi Pedro
I hope all is going well with your wife, I find that the power of positive thinking is one of the best medicines.

As for your car you have the light at the end of the tunnel just work towards it and you will get there one day.

Cheers Jim

Thanks for the kind words Jim, she goes for more tests thursday so we should know what's happening after that, It's frustrating having my wagon finally sitting there sandblasted and ready to start, but family comes first.





Dean, these are my choices for wheels so far, but that's still a long way off, I could still change my mind if i saw something i liked better.

the first one i think is matrix and that is the one i used in the concept car Wink Wink

 i like the look of it but the artwork doesnt have the wheel at scale (17 inch) but it gives you some idea...

hope all is well with Mez Wink

Hey Pedro

I like the first wheel the best, simpler style and easier to keep clean without having to get into all those little lines! 

I was wondering which day this week Mez was going for tests - best of luck with it all.  Jim's right - the power of positive thinking..... and don't forget laughter too!  Cheesy
