Ok, wasn't happy with the front, it was too tight, it fit but a pita too remove. So I stripped it back took a few mm off it and knocked it up a notch...

So progress to completion pics!

This is the faceplate I cadded and emblemsz made...

Image

and two tone...

Image

and a funky angle

Image

and another

Image

Image

and the back.... removable panels - I'd probably leave the top one, but middle and bottom could be removed. Lovely tight fit (ooh-err) so a seatbelt loop added to help.

now fully clothed

Very nice, the front panel looks good too. Did you consider a strip of piping across the colour change line?

Yes. Thats why there is one there. Apparently its 'Gold' but I think its more a dark brown. My proper camera has a flat battery. I'll charge and remove the glue residue and take some album pics over the weekend ;)

The two tone finish was only decided a couple of hours ago, it was even more subtle on black/black.

I reckon it's more of a camouflage than a gold or brown :mrgreen:

I was surprised at the colour, I'd expected the more marshall colour, which apparently is Bronze.

I love this between black and cream though, its quite a merging colour.
