Dean should be in the restoration business. Nice work!

Here's a Euro 560SEC from the SEC Porn 1 & 2 Diary video on YouTube:

Look like genuine 3-piece LM BBS.

Thanks - I prepped all of the timber paneling (made 1 full set out of parts from 3 cars), sanded, primed and painted gloss black then had the carbon hydro-graphics done by a local shop here in Perth. They have since gone out of business unfortunately.

Did you notice the extra panel between the ashtray and coil tray? This was made from a section of the timber facia from a spare glove box.
