Years ago I'd have been painted purple and paraded around Abergavenny with a 'Kick Me Hard' sign dangling from my neck for painting this body in gold. And worse, it's Ford Arizona Gold. Indefensible inauthenticity, inexcusable heresy and vandalistic anarchy, no doubt. No doubt at all, so please be as condemnatory and rude as you like, and see fit.

Curiously - few are - I rather like it.

Gosh, approval. Thank you, chaps. I expected to be wearing sackcloth and ashes by now. I painted the car in gold to go alongside my 1955 'Millionth' production Beetle. Now waiting for the paint to dry, of course.

American skin eh? 😄
Well don’t worry Laurence could be worse, it could be FF2800 color (go google it😁), as long as Gandhi approves it will be ok 😉.

Headlamps, rear lights and a few details attended to 'smorn. Nearly finished and looking well in my view. Now have to wait for glue to dry, and for a man to deliver and assemble Mrs Grumpy's new wardrobe. Mrs Grumpy greatly looking forward to this non-event. Unbelievable but true.

I'll just get on with re-reading The Three Bears whilst I wait - most impatiently.

The gold 60K10 has now been screwed back together and is ready for its maiden laps on the Mess, apart from the need to allow transfers to dry. Could be a party later ( a working party, naturally) to celebrate, so I'll buzz awf for my daily bicycle ride, and look forward to lappery anon.

My thanks again to Frogeye for the superb bodyshell, and to everyone for your comments and interest. Thank you!
