Hello, I’ve been a member for about a month or so, I forgot to put my pictures up of my NB. Any suggestions on what I can do to get my Mazda looking better. Unfortunately as you can see the paintwork is shocking, as the last owner decided to rattle can the car in primer. So I am in the look for a new spray. It was originally green. Which I’m hoping to put back into green once funds are there. I don’t know if I’m aloud to put this on the section, so apologies. Like I said any suggestions on what to do going forward is much appreciated.
Sorry pictures didn’t come out as I wanted
Racing Green Would Be Fabulous
But the Boot Looks Black Which Would Also Be Cool
My NB Icon is Chilli Orange
Racing green was what I was thinking also. I was thinking black roof, mirrors and a couple of black strips down sides of doors but near the sills area.
I do like ur orange on yours
My first car was a Mark 1 Ford Escort and I put lots of ‘Go Faster’ bits on it [as it they were called in 1979]
It looked great until someone hit it…then hassle with replacing the strips !
It also to be said in them days avoid ‘shiny metallic’ paints for similar reasons
If you have a prang it can be difficult to match up the shade on the repair
2015 ish my PREVIOUS garage managed to prang my Icon taking her too fast off the ramp
They paid to repair the rear wing but there is definitely a slight shade difference
Also might like to consider whether a change of colour would match the interior ?
Depends whether you want to be a ‘purist’ or do something ‘unique’
As you say …boils down to funds and like mine  as they age - other matters will crop up
Best of Luck and Enjoy what ever you decide
Wow a mark 1 escort. Would love a mark 1. I want the car to be different. The colour inside the car is actually still green. Thank u for the reply’s
