Really nice work, Mirroman.

Where did you mange to find those Repsol decals?

I'm thinking about doing a similar paintjob on mine, but I'd need that large side decal "Repsol" for that. The rest is more or less already in the Ford box, I think.

.. ok, I see there's some on ebay.

Oops, I just had a horrible thought, I may just settle for a dark blue paintjob as I just realized the amount of tinkering this Repsol-motif brings.

Interior painted and finished over the last few days , and fitted tonight, 
 So, part from electronics, this is FINISHED ..  Yay!  

I think I've got the stance about correct for a rally version??
I'm waiting for a set of the same style rally wheels, which will come fitted with rally block tyres, so I may have to adjust it a little more. .



I took these photos quickly tonight, so the lighting isn't great - will take some better photos tomorrow.

Thanks UncleTom,
Though the paint job was 1 day and the decals another 2 days (I'm slow) - I'm really happy I tackled this project. 

The Repsol sticker sheet came with an L&L body set I purchased. No instructions with the sheet though, so applying was a trial & error process.   The REPSOL "swipe" is made up of about 10 pieces .. very nerve racking  

The only stickers on the body from the original kit are:

Window surrounds
Windscreen sun strip
Bonnet intakes
Grill and other intakes on the front of  the car
The headlights (not the red dots), the thin black stripes around the headlights area, and the parking lights. 
The rear tail lights. 
And maybe a few extra FORD decals. 

All the rest is from the L&L REPSOL sheet.
