Alright all?

Well its been a busy weekend for me, i had a mate over and we blitz's loads of jobs on my ST and 205 GTI, had an awesome weekend.

Anyway during the weekend i painted my calipers black and we fitted a new stripe. Its something a little different and we kind of copied the idea from the old school Escort RS1600i style fade and text. Let me know what you think, i really like it so it will be staying for a while.

Cheers.

Love the calipers but undecided on the stripe...it may well grow on me, but it's always good to try something different.

Really like it mate , looks like the old wolf stripe kit

I'd maybe have it going a little further down the bonnet tho ??

Cheers for the replies, im really starting to like it now. I know what you mean about taking it down to the bottom lip on the bonnett, or further. But we tried this and the angles as the bonnet curves away made the stripe look wonky, its hard to fit straight cut vinyl to curved surfaces and make it look right, so this was the best comprimise.

I think the black calpiers are quite subtle, but make the wheels look alot better then when standard.

I think thats it for the stickers now, with the stripe and the matte black sunstrip, dont want to over do it. Just need some grey Compomotive MO6's and it will be finished!

I love the new stripe, it looks great on your car and it was a good idea to incorporate the ST260 into it


I've recently changed my callipers to black (they were red before) and agree that they look very smart behind the wheels - the best bit is they don't look covered in brake dust either

Looks brilliant. Looks like it was fitted by a pro too


Best thing about it is that its totally unique and got a nice retro look to it; with the RS1600i font and stagger.
