Winter Makeover
April 09, 2012 05:16PM
Finally got off my hind end and cleaned up the rallycross car.

The cage got some new tubes and gussets to make it stage rally legal; all covered in a coat of Grabber Blue paint. The exterior was sprayed with some leftover Dodge silver of some shade. Not sure I like the combo...I may re-spray the outside GB too....or a bright orange! Suggestions wanted....

If OTR wasn't over $1.5K just for entry, I'd try to make it up but more likely going to shoot for HDT locally.

I think the silver looks good with the smurf blue cage.

that blue would look bitchin' on the outside too - now you've got me thinking about that for my car, instead of kawi green like I was planning...

(that is, if I ever find myself at the point where I feel that I'd rather put time/money into making the car look nice, rather than making it a better car.......)

given that something like 75% of the cars on the road these days are silver/grey/metallic-bland, bright colors for race cars is never a bad idea IMO.

I like the color combo, not too attention grabbing on the outside, but look in side and it slaps you in the face and says, lets go racing... Seriously though, not a bad choice at all, keep it for a while, see if you still like it after a race or two.

Winter makeover has turned into a summer makeover!

Finally got the brakes and found time to test fit them. I still need some pads........paging the resident brake expert....
