This was done by the DPO. As far as I know it is a GM/Vauxhall colour "Flame Orange" metalic. The colour has grown on me but when I have the car resprayed my current idea is to go for a classic white with a green stripe over the top. Very boy racer :wink:

Where is the rollbar from? Is it on a Lotus or Spyder Chassis? Can you get the drivers seat back to (or close to) full stretch with the rollbar in?

Spyder chasis and roll bar. I am only a short arse so the seat is well forward. There is a lot of romm behind the seat, as the roll bar is against the rear bulkhead.
