Firstly I'd like to point out that I don't do restoration, I like to get cars, bikes and trikes and make them into something different, something they have never been before sometimes even with something as simple as a paint job and a few other bits. I've always loved Mad Max since I was a kid and wanted to do the sort of post apocalyptic look that the cars in the films have and the Scimitar looks so futuristic anyway I couldn't resist it. Would all purists who like original paint jobs please look away now ! :D
(Thanks to everyone on the forums who helped with the wiring, steering wheel, dashboard and starter motor issues)

Fair enough, that's a well-presented car that will certainly attract attention.
The hot air outlets are a good idea, too.
What colours is it by the way 8)
