Recommended Posts

Oh, and here's a car that just got through IVA. Chap in Manchester built it. Stradale with an Alfa v6. Took him about 15 months and 330 odd hours cry.gif

I was in the Manchester area a few days ago and saw a green Stratos...so possibly the one mentioned above :)

Quick update.

Starting the paint got delayed but should be in primer on Tues next week when I go over and take the recently collected windows and screen over to check the fit before painting.

Current timeline is:
 

End May collect from paint
First week of June - engine mapping
End of June go to trimmers for carpets, dash, door cards etc.

With a lot of luck I reckon it might be ready for IVA end of July.

But now I've said that there is no way it will happen wall.gif

Very probably buddy, it'll be brilliant no matter what though.

The front lamp pod has been painted in the colour I chose just to make sure it's what I want. So I took a pic...........

It looks nothing like this in the 'flesh'!!! It's actually like this:

So looks like my car will look crap in photographs when it's done lol.gif

Leigh, there's no such thing as a crap looking Stratos...even stealth black looks pretty good :)

It's getting greener......

This pic is a better take on the actually colour but probably shows it a tiny bit greener than it actually is. It's very bright in the flesh (or plastic/FG)
