Friday, when's your Zed gonna be finished????


Recommended Posts

In my eyes, this will probably be the nicest modded Zed EVER....if this pic is anything to go by (as long as it has 99spec rear lights!!) :bow:

It's done when it's done when it's done ;)

 

I'm holding Steve up at the moment as things are being finalised for the V8 conversion.

 

We're staying fairly true to the original mock-up although the eventual paint scheme may end up being different. No 99 spec lights I'm afraid as I can't stand 'em! As the unenlightened say, it's "caravan lights" I'm afraid :rofl: (good enough for the Zonda, good enough for me ;))

 

Love it or hate it, we're hoping the end result will be something totally different.

 

Cheers for the kind words matey :)

 

Oh...and yes, the Trafficstars are staying...;)

What are these "caravan lights" got any pics?

 

 

the caravan lights are different to the 99 spec, they'r the round 4 pot lights like tizer has (first one that came into my head that has them!)

No, the ones on the photo above are the "old style" round lights (yep, from a Fiat). They're a bit small for my liking so I bought a set of different lights a couple of years ago from the original maker. A few companies now sell this light conversion in both "2 pot" and "3 pot" forms. Here's an old photo of mine with them on:

So glad you decided to have a proper paint job. That grung finish thingy didn't really do it for me

I personally think that if you're going down that route, then get some afterburner lights like SgT C or MarkZX. Usually not my cuppa tea, but with the backing plates and centre section sprayed gloss black, they look really cool. I think with your kit and if you have that almost pearl effect paint, it would look really good.

 

MarkZXs rear looks really good with those lights.

Sorry Leigh, I think I agree with Si!

IMHO I don't like those fiat type lights, some of the 3 pot lights look a lot better.

 

I'm just really suprised you aren't going for a bespoke design after all the effort going into the car. Did this cross your mind?

Lol! The trouble with me is I tend to get a mad idea and unlike saner people, I run with it! :D Was originally fabricating some R34 Skyline lights into the back-end but saw the round lights that I have and thought they went perfectly with the look that we're going for. And again, I personally prefer the 2 pot design to the 3. Mark's afterburner lights are nice but a bit OTT for me ;) (I like grunge! :rofl: ;)) The main design buzz words for the original brief and drawings were: aggressive, smooth, factory-fit, stylish (with a nod to the DTM and Japanese GT series). No lairy coloured flips, metal flakes or graphics (at the most a TVR-esque flip).

 

Once the exterior and engine is finished the interior and install will be completed over the autumn/winter...custom dash, door cards, rear sub & amp install (sponsored by Matt at Nearfield Audio)...fingers crossed it should be nice when it's done

 

We're hoping this car will rattle a few cages both in the UK and outside if all goes well.

 

One thing a few may find interesting is that a version of it will be produced as a kit...;)

Guest lets drift

Just go with what you like mate, I'm sure once it all comes together it will look totally amazing and very eye catching.

Vive la difference and all that.
