Looks great, to me something about the different nose of the SE5 makes metallic look even better.

It's a gorgeous colour, period and fitting.

That looks really good, the colour is stunning! :D

I was thinking about doing something similar with the headlights, I'm not really sure why Lucas only specced dip on the outers!

on mine, the original lucas loom was still all intact, so only had to trace back to find the taped up dip beam feed, and connect to the outer circuit, took about 20 mins and a new joining block :D

The choice of colour is great you don't see many se5's in that shade and should look great with the PA wheels.

You'll probably have you car ready for the road before I've done mine at this rate!

Started a bit of fitting back up................. what do you think ?

Looking at the new colour - Windscreen fitted picture:
Did your windscreen rubber fit well? If yes where is it from or is it still original (?!?)

BTW: really nice colour.

screen rubber fits really well, insert piece was too long so had to be cut, both were from QRG.

cheers
