With Nik's dedication to keeping it looking as standard as possible, I'd put money on a standard Cooper colour.
Pale green with an old English white roof?

I'd like to see BRG, not sure about the roof though.

The arches have bothered my for a while, because they look a whole lot wider than the extra 4 inches, but it is amazing how a quick rattle can paint job made them all but disappear!

sandglow, or tobacco or something equally horrible!


in reality, a good gunmetal might be a fair shout, something like the metallic dark grey they did e46 m3s in.

It could even be a Toyota colour.

Like buses, you wait for ages and then two trundle along together. Nice.

Fantastic work as always. It was panel gaps not "approvals" that Nick was dreading. I think we would all be interested in how the approvals process is being managed? All that needs to be done surely is the bloke from the Ministry needs to watch some u-tube!

As for the colour, I speculated a few pages pages back even offering up the British Standard Tea colour chart and BL tea coloured colours. I cannot wait to find out what colour it is going to be. It is like the car equivalent of "Who shot JR?"....

As for the bare shell, I do hope some 'on location' filming is going to take place? And as for the process, I assume Binky will be off to the sheep dip somewhere. Love to see many gratuitous before and after shots of the oily bits and no doubt the engine alone will take up at least an episode.

Who did shoot JR?

Looking back I forgot quite what a phenomenon Dallas was in the pre-internet, tabloid dominating seventies. The only episode of Dallas I ever watched was the one after JR was shot. After 54 minutes of crap JR, in the hospital bed, was asked, who shot you JR? and he replied,
'It was....[takes breath] it was... [takes another breath] It was..too dark to tell. Music and credits.

Was it British Racing Green that shot him? Always a bit of a wrong'un that BRG.

I prefer Brooklands Green, like Ray Barnes is BG, he had good reason but would never shoot anyone.

what about that flat goose poo green colour (almond?) they used to make them in originally, with an old English white roof?

Nice geeky engine update gone live. I won’t spoil the bombshell, but I was shocked.
