its just a hard ,cool looking car ....not really euro look ,but like classic euro look ,well thats the best I can describe .....the best compliment I ever had was that my ghia wasn't cal look or resto cal ......it was just a nice looking car .......so bloody well done for not being a sheep ,and following what YOU like ...AND pulling it off ,because this can go way wrong .....but you've got it way right in my opinion ......and if its not a diamond on the mantle piece ....GOOD ,cos its not a cheque book resto ...its another DBS home grown .......just look back through the resto threads .....there are some awesome works from all walks of life ....and you have been a part of that ......so well done again dude ,it takes a lot of hard earned and problem solving to get a resto driving ,let alone looking as good as yours ....you should be well proud ....I know I am for you
