Ride: EF II Futura I6 5-Speed Manual

Location: Ballina

Hey,

Was just reading another thread and it got me thinking about a mod that i was planning a while back.

I have the standard futura door moulds in black (as seen below on my Mauritious Blue Futura).

I was thinking of either colour coding them moulds, getting the Fairlane or Fairmont (thicker than standard ones) colour coded or having none at all like the pic attached (thanks uglybob!).

What do you think would look best? Got a pic of the thicker fairlane moulds colour coded?

Cheers,
Tim

i think if you prep it good and use clear pressure pack is pretty good for smaller jobs like that

I'd go fairmont/fairlane mouldings. I'm not a fan of the missing moulds, it just looks like something is missing (funny about that!)

A bit like the VB-VL commodores when they had no door moulding, It just looks uncomplete.

My opionon, remember they are like a**hole, everyone has one.
