Hello mate,

The original dodgy white that the bodykit was IS original. If you go painting it the same pearl white as the bodywork then you will lose it's originality. As a bodykit guy like you are I'm sure you can find a closer match to the OE colour of the arches.

Believe me mate when I say that Phase 1 Pearl White's are as rare as rocking horse teeth!! They were a standard colour for the first production run of fives but as far as I know were not a custom or rare colour. It's just the passage of time & the limited numbers that were made that make them rare!!  :wink:

I can't off the top of my head think of another guy owning a nice OE looking one?? Phase 1's were made in Black, Pearl White, Red, Silver & Electric Blue & I know people that have every colour except Pearl White.

Got a bit of a soft spot for the Pearl White ones as a guy I knew had one when I was a younger man & it was that very car that got me into the fives in the first place!  :wink:

All road going GT Turbo's were fitted with Electric Windows as they were the factory fit. The 5 COUPE model (basis of the UK Cup Car & sold in Europe in handfulls) was issued with Manual winding windows.

Nooooooooooooooooooooooooo!!!!

Don't re-spray or touch that original Pearl White phase 1 bodykit!!

I kid you not when I say that may be the LAST original Pearl White Phase 1 in the country!!! They're THAT rare!!!

If you re-spray/mess about with it you will be reducing it's value guaranteed!!!  :wink:  :wink:

But It's your car & you can do with it what you want mate, just my point of view!  :)

I spent a good deal of time getting to the bottom of the problems with my gauge changing looms, & sensor & it turned out to be a dodgy gauge.

It's just a case of finding which one of the three is the culpret..!
