Why would you want to look like everyone else....... Big Grin

Nice boss - this would look good in British Racing green.... wild

Personally though I like older cars in lighter colours - but the bodywork has to be excellent as lighter colours show up the flaws... bad

Good project - everything from the newer models should fit easily or with minor mods... victory
