230 does look closer to the mark - god knows whether youd even pick one hole at 240 when its on the car

Ive been a bit slack re this one. I have a habit of finishing them 95% of the way and moving on to the next one. A couple of weeks ago i bit the bullet & left it with a friend who is a bit of a fuss pot. Hes tidying up and finishing it off. The head lining is in and looking good. A trimmer fitted it for $200.
 
I don't visit him often but have an idea of how he's going - he shows up now and then looking for some part or other....
 
(Behind the red GXL - up on that platform is my RS3100 and underneath it is the black mk3 S pack - hes got a lot of work to do!)
 



 
 
I love the lines on the car - theyre all there - you can see the guards and bonnet are crisp and clean!

Love it. Once the dark red interior is in( if you go that way) you’ll fall in love with it. My preferred interior colour now.

boy that looks good!
I know youll be disappointed but im going to put a black interior into the blue ice one - mainly because i have a very nice black interior with blue inserts in one of the sheds. I dont think the blue / red interior will look good either...

 don't do it spud!
You could have white interior and gen-u-ine circa 1990 lambswool covers same as me.
No aus cars should have black vinyl seats IMHO.

Don’t do the black into the blue ice Spud. It’s a very rare car maybe the rarest ever made. Black for the pewter Capri but please go red as per its name plate. It’s your car ( now) but it’s really rare.

That wild plum one is getting a white interior (may even do the lambs wool thing!)
eventually I may put a red interior in the blue ice one - if I ever get it done but the black interior needs a home and they survive better in a car
