Hi guys as some of you know I am building a 250 GT try to post pictures of the build, but I had the pictures in photobucket and I can't get to them, at the moment the car is in the paint shop hoping to have it home this weekend will post some pictures straight from my camera, so another 250 GT will be hitting the road this year.

Wow
Car number 3 John..! Making it a hat-Trick.!!

You may have to consider installing some of these on this new build, as you can't seem to keep away from the kurb's in your DNA's..?!?

Yes Lee that is a good idea but it's not me who hits the kurbs its my sisters that seems to like hitting them, a another solution is not to let everyone else driving it, and I think you and Wizard will  like the color

Sorry John
But I'm going to have to say the jury is out at the moment.

Never seen a white 250, so not sure what I will think until the bright work goes on

Not sure white is right for this car Smiley doesn't show off the chrome etc and looks to modern ?? I've done a e type jag in cream and with the chrome doesn't look as good as a blue or a burgundy etc

I really like the white, white car, lashings of chrome and a black roof will really look good.
One of the main reasons white convertibles don't look good is that people fit tacky white roofs.

Aah! John, now I know why my 2Fifty is not ready yet!
You got in the queue first. Yours is the one on top I guess?

Hope you are pleased with the result when you finally get it.

I'll have to wait a few weeks more......

Getting very excited to know a couple more of these beauties will soon be on the road.

I think the white will look great. A red interior would be incredible.

My kit car i decided to have my car white as it is not a Ferrari it is how I think it should be, I have sprayed the car Ford frozen white which is a pure white,
I know madman likes red so I decided to do the inside red leather,
There is a picture of a grey car. With red interior I sat in his car and the seats were not very comfortable some people have put rover 90 seats in their cars and I found the top of the windscreen was in the way I am only 5 foot 9.
So my problem was finding some seats, there is a picture of a kit car at the Kent kit car club show i sat in his car and the seats were really comfortable I was told they were MGB seats i used to have a MGB and then not MGB seats, I found a firm in West London and thay make aftermarket MGB seats they do them in back vinyl or black leather with white piping so I bought two vinyl have stripped the covers and use them as pattern for my red leather seats, you can see by the picture thay have a small headrest and thay recline when I finished I will post some pictures of the sears.

first picture DNA grey car red seats.
Second picture  white MGB seats in a kitcar.
