NICE ! Now what about putting some nice mags and rubber on it? Would also look good with a nice flame paint job on the yellow, have some excamples in old "Trucken" magazines. :mrgreen:

Contact the Vaal Old Wheels! I believe that the making of lenses are still alive and kicking as Dup had trained somebody!!
There is an option of spraying the faded lenses!!

If the lenses are in OK shape, just faded got to a hobby/craft shop that sells stained glass paint. Buy a bottle of red and a bottle of orange. Use a small brush and paint the inside of the lens with the stuff. Job done.

I was thinking that perhaps it did, I remember seeing a yellow Granada Coupe like this racing at Killarney in the past. Car looks really good.
