  • Re: DNA 3Sixty Build Diary - CdRsKuLL

    Hi m8, they just sold a 355 cab last month..



    The finish on it was fantastic....

    Well did a bit more on it today, finished off the filler cap and put a couple of grills in. The rear deck is now on the car and I satin blacked some metal work in the engine bay. Sadly my rear ferrari badge is 5mm's out at the back (not quite central) I dont know how it happened but the center line I went off to place the badge wasnt central.. anyway I still need to decide on what to do with it. I see it as 3 options.. 1, just leave it. 2,try and fill one of the holes and maybe drip some paint or something into it. I dont mind a slight dip as you wouldnt really see it as it would be on the very corner of the badge once the legs of this badge are cut off and moved.. or 3, fill and repaint the whole rear deck again.. I think I will try option 2, and if it looks a mess then option 3 I'm afraid.. These thngs happen. I have took afew pics.. these are below. The finish on the rear deck s great, the painter has also painted the underside a dull black stonechip type of paint I think he said.. anyway as I left they were going to fit the bonnet. :-) know the badge is right on that.. lol

    more to come.. O the pics

        Looking so good, my levels of envy are expanding by the day hope the quick fix works on the badge..if not maybe a small LED wired to the alarm will fill the hole...just a thought

              Right.. where are we upto.. hmm

              ok, the boot / bonnet / doors are on. I spent today cutting and installing the original bucket / cover from the MR2 under the bonnet and ts come out really well. I have cut out and grilled up the bit that goes infront of the windscreen and sprayed it satin black, just waiting for it to dry so I can install the washers into it and then get it on the car. I also need to cut a bit of plastic to make up the 5 inch gap at the front but that wlil be under the bonnet done then :-)

              I also fiddled about with the LEDs for the rear window. I have hot glued them to the underside of the glass and wired them in. I have also satin blacked a bit of textured metal which has been placed under it. The glass hasnt been cleaned and has loads of crap on it.. but you will get the idea of the LEDs anyway.

              The door gaps are fantastic.. couldnt be more pleased with them.

              I'm busy now till Monday so will just have to twiddle my thumbs as per normal till then..


              heres some pic's

                      Yeah, I cant lie - the strip lights are really not my cup of tea. Like tricky said, they do seem to draw attention to the main part of the car you dont want people to look at.

                      The rest of the build is coming on brilliantly though. I'm impressed!

                              i think the red lights int he engine bay would be a great accent while driving.

                              If parked, i agree with other posters that it may draw attention to areas you wouldnt want attention...

                              just my humble opinion...

                                great car. Keep up the good work. Love everything about your car. Driving at night with the led's in the rear mirror and everyone else seeing the red glow will be amazing...
