The A62435 Car Build

Recommended Posts

Gents, I need some opinion on stripe and decal colour...   1, 2 or 3 in various light.

Number 1 gets my vote, I like the contrast. 

2 & 3 are too close to the base colour.

I like 2 because it is really subtle. On that colour I think that is what I would go for. I don't really like the metallic against the solid colour of the car.

I of course would have gone for the loudest colour car available, with wing of course , so stripes on that imaginary car would be BOLD 😈

I agree stripe 2 is subtle which to my mind is perfect for a GT3 Touring which is a bit more understated.

Thanks Gents, I like 1 initially as it was grey / brown and chalk has similar attributes.  Has a brown hue in some light although mostly looks like grey.    But then the metallic of 1 didn't sit right with the non metallic chalk in my mind, hence looking at some flat greys.  Other thing is 2 is a matte version.  Subsequent thought is go with 2, then go gloss. 

Given the vinyls on 1 have been purchased (online store) I think I'll install them initially. If no good, can always take them off and try again I suppose. 

Matte black was another option but gets to a point having too much going on with a strong contrast.

I think 2 in gloss would be my pick. Black on that car would be too much I think.

The way I see it is the Touring in Chalk is about being subtle (something I know very little about) ;)

Well there you have it. Final build on the car. Couple of years in the making but will say I'm really happy with it.  Beautiful car to drive.  Really enjoying it.  

Out of interest, for those considering Chalk on future cars, Ive shared a few picture of chalk / Crayon in the sun and in the shade.  Not only in pictures, but it takes on quite a range of grey hues in real life. 

Well hope you have enjoyed the build history and random info as much as I did in building it.  See you on the road or at a targa sometime.👍

Shout out to the guys that helped and worth looking up:

  • Jason at PCB. 
  • NS2 Media 
  • Lee Brother Upholsters 
  • Exclusive Wraps

Well ..... firstly, congratulations.  I tip my hat, you had the patience and vision and it has all come off.  That is one awesome looking car.   

For me the wheels were alway the most challenging but the guys have nailed it.  Not a massive fan of the factory guards red ones but in the yellow they look the ducks.

Also, nice read.

Hi, Assume a touring already in or incoming ? Care to share more ?    Stripes where from exclusive wraps, of the design I gave them, so they could reprint I assume.  They are the same as the turbo exclusive or the 997 sports classic if that helps.
