The undercarriage work is outstanding, hard to believe it was a one piece mould. The interior is looking scrumptious, the effort has definitely paid off. Beautiful work!

Hi all. Some minor work done. I'll think on some stripe designs for the door.

Glasswork finished.

Here's a digital mock up of what I think looks good. May I have your opinions on it please? I've based it on the heritage edition but slightly altered it.

This looks very good.  The heritage edition was a unique design.
 
Are you going to include the heritage edition's center stripe on top?

Looks great as it is, but I just have to throw in my 2 cents worth.  LOL

I like all these ideas you are throwing my way. It should be encouraged I think. Gary likes this particular one.

I'm using self adhesive vinyl tape for this. It cuts really well and lays down nicely.

Very nice. Who makes that tape? It looks just as thin as a decal.

Nice looking product. Is that the 5mm tape on the sides of the stripe or did you custom cut thinner ones? Awesome job laying it all down straight.

Hi. I bought a 15mm roll just to see how it went. They are all custom cut from there. You can cut really thin with a good blade and it is very forgiving. I must admit, I was suprised that the thin lines at the sides cut as well as they did and was probably going to leave it solid black but it worked really well.

Holy tape work! The detailing on the head and tail lights is superb, as are the body accent bits, but that tape striping is fantastic.
