YSL 349

Postby Mabel58 » Mon Apr 17, 2017 5:27 pm

The original photos seem to have disappeared from the original post. We thought we would repost on a new topic. Here is our finished A35 in court grey. It has taken just under 8 years. Some of you may remember it from the first post here: viewtopic.php?f=4&t=281&p=1663&hilit=atomick197#p1663

Absolutely lovely! And the colour looks almost indistinguishable from my Chelsea Grey A30.

Wow! :bow:

That's a funny shade of blue though.

Thanks!

Yeah it was speedwell blue but we changed our mind towards the latter end of the restoration. We still wanted an original colour though and decided on court grey.

Nice job... :thumbs:

An observation... It is recommended that seat belt mountings be placed higher up the B post...
