Wow, this pic looks awesome, it looks like it was taken in the 70's with that Manta in the background. I keep looking for a hot braless chick in bell bottoms.

Marco can you please do me a favor?
They install my windscreen and rear window this week but I forgot about the rear view mirror.
Can you measure on the outside from the top of the beading to top of mirror mount and also on the driver side from the outside of the beading to the steering wheel side of the mirror mount.

I just want to make sure we stick it in the correct position.

Hey there.

Sorry, forgot to check this for you. Will take some measurements and get back to you.

Finished the interior this weekend.
Still have to panel beat the external window trims and paint them.
Will post pics of the outside once finished.

Any idea where I will find tyres with white lettering on?
Size is 225/70 R15

I tried Jeppe tyres, during last week they answered and said they will call me back, today no answer, 2x emails no answer.

Is there any other place which will keep such tyres.

Many tyre places have the size, but not with white lettering.

Do one get a paint you can use to paint it yourself?

I think autostyle sell a lettering pen, but I have never used one.

BF Goodrich sell white letter types, and I have seen goodyear eagles on cobras.

Seen plenty tow trucks around with those " Hercules " tires on too

Try Mowtown, I saw some stick on lettering kits by them a while back, probably better than the white pen.

Thanx a million. I saw an American site with custom lettering, but that worked out with shipping to about R2k per set.

So frustrated, still waiting for the correct ring set. Water pump back plate arrived.
Rims are in CPT for cleaning up and making nice again.
Rest of the car are almost ready.
