Thought I'd pop my head in and say hello, it's been a while.
Still got the stupid purple car. It's still stupid and still fighting me at every corner.
Between parts not fitting, things that I did when I had a shoe string budget and things people that should know better were paid for, it's been very stressful.

Welcome back mate!

2 Questions, what's the name of that colour (and which maker)?

And where can I get a C/F bonnet like that one?

Cheers, Steve

Evening Steve, colour is BMW P28 Twilight Purple.
The bonnet, I picked up from Sprintspeed.
But, Rob isn't keen on doing another one. I believe the one on his race car is Carbon Kevlar which looked amazing.
