Another 411 back on the road.. :)

Post by 4ordinary » 5th January 2013 - 8:38pm

Thought it was about time I put some pics of my 411 Variant up..... after something of a weldathon and a lot of head scratching sorting out the D jet engine, its now MOT'ed and running sweet once more...

I agree with BarbBee, very Marmite 411 there! And everyone calls the stock Type 4s Marmite cars anyway!!!!

Still good to see another one being used though

Glad to see its dividing opinion slightly :lol: ....I must admit I was really unsure about the orange window thing when I got it but in the two months its sat in my workshop it has really grown on me....and even the greyest of days has a lovely warm glow to it when your driving it :lol:

Ricky - I reckon orange windows in an orange panel van would work.. ;)

I've seen one with wood-effect vinyl where you've put white on the sides - like a USA 'woody'.

It's probably only a fablon self-adhesive material, maybe edged with pin-striping tape. There was a Polo covered in wood effect wrap and all manner of wooden items. It was doing the shows maybe 5 years ago. I think that's OTT, but it was done well.
