Hello all,
I am getting my Landcruiser Amazon 100 re-sprayed.
Its black with blacked out windows. Its got rust on the wheel arches which will need to be repaired before.

Any ideas on what type of black will look good?

Also, what other mods can I do - anyone like the chrome wing mirror covers??

Have found a bodyshop that'll do the job for me. Will post the before and after pics on here!

Regards
Simon

Whaddya think?

think you're right about the all black metallic. The body sop guy was saying like a black with silver flake in it (like a silver glitter) - he's gonna do a sample panel for me so I can make sure it don't look girlie!

What do ya need?? lol  Very Happy

Nah buddy, just want to give our beloved Amazon a total facelift.

Still thinking about whether to go for the black alloys though. The body shop guy reckons he can refurbish and paint each alloy black or any colour for 50!

Blood exciting time though - literally got a blank canvas on which to experiment.

Just had the brakes and standard service done too, drives great again.

Abit like the A-Team van??

I have found a bodyshop in Wolverhampton. I will post pre and post photos!

I have big plans like:
1) black paint with silver glitter (body shop guy reckons it'll look awesome)
2) chrome number plate surrounds
3) chrome door mirrors
4) chrome door handle
5) alloys painted dark grey or matt black

What do we think?

Regards,
Simon
