Yes a similar colour, but a Ford RS colour makes it faster and more valuable!!

Quite possibly - certainly need to change my signature! :)
If/when you fancy a change of name, just drop me a PM as it's only something an Admin can do.

Have clarified my previous post, but I can oblige if you wish, Mikey. Just don't be surprised if I forget to change it back on Monday. Or ever...

Yes - was aiming at something similar to that colour - do you know what colour yours actually was. Never quite been able to find out. mine originally Shetland Blue - not sure if that's your colour?

Gives me some idea of what mine may look like when back together!

I so wish I'd bought that from you Steve as it's the double of my first Scimitar... which I still have the remains of!!

:lol: , It was the photo I took when I'd loaded it up to take to its new owner. I also wanted to remind myself in the future that I could get an SE5 sized Scim' on my little trailer.

TBH, I've no idea. The car had had a body off rebuild and respray, so it could've been any one of a number of blues.
