Have finished rebuilding the RS - has taken a bit longer than I expected due to other commitments.

Have posted some photos in the gallery but they don't really do it justice...why is it SO bl**dy hard to get decent pics of anything white !! :doh: :doh:

Was hoping for a bit of sun on the front this aft but it never came. Will post some more when I can catch it glinting in the sunlight....:rolling:

Looking bloody fantastic Dave and the carbon covers finish it off a treat.

Were did you get the decals with the gold outline from and are you able to say what the re-spray cost you?

Cracking Looks there Dave and carbon graphics good finishing touch. is the mesh going back on to protect silly people shoving there fingers in the fan area just before they start as it'd be a shame to have blood flying onto that white paintwork :D . Good can as well although small extreme pipe would be nice ;) - a ball park figure would be great for those considering doing similar (dream machine if i remember right) . this is the second Tornado done in white and its a fresh look indeed :clap:​

Took the mesh off to reveal the fans more. I remember seeing the original Tre at the NEC and there was no soft as sh*te "Health & Safety" mesh on that one !!

Dream Machine did the whole job including making up the decals...

Ball park figure ???? how about £700 all in ...form an orderly queue please...

Wow

All I can say its transformed it totally.

Loving the decals very trick :bow: The carbon looks soooooo right!!

Trouble is being white - I can guarantee you will spend most of your time cleaning it. But arent all our Nellies our Labour Of Love??

But am sure that is the pleasure of owning such a good looking machine. :D

At least you know theres only one other white one. I think thats abroad somewhere....

Before you decided on the final colour did you consider any other colour scheme? - other than the obvious Red, Yellow, Black Green/Silver, race rep - ala Mr Windsors..
Did they photoshop it for you to show you what it would look like in different colours?

Think some chromed silver mesh in them fan surrounds would look the business though:)
