My most recent purchase arrived today (thanks mynameiscasper) and here are the pictures of it in it's current condition. It will hopefully be going off to be blasted in the next week or so and then a new paint job.

I haven't really had too many thoughts of a colour yet. Finishing kit will be mostly Canadian. Other than that I'm not sure yet. A lot of the kit will be bought when I can afford it so this is the start of what could be a very long road.

More to follow, any paint suggestions welcome as well as suggestions of kit to hang on it (this era is certainly not my area of expertise to say the least) :)

In a word - NO :)

Have toyed with a candy apple red, dark metallic green or even possibly an understated matt olive green. I'm off to a local body shop sometime next week to hopefully get some inspiration!

Good to see it went to a good home. If you had said that you didn't have the key to remove the BB I would have done this for you.

As for colour... Matt olive green would look ace indeed. I wanted this colour on my Dekerf SSer but ended up with some sort of british racing green with gold flakes... :roll:

How about matt black and rasta theme? Just think about how cool the rasta coloured logo's will be....
