Seeing as its Japanese half hour over on the I-Spy Classic Cars thread here's a Nissan March (Micra) K12 with the look....yes quite boring I know, and probably not a good advert for the Paint Shop on the door :!:

The micra will be a wrap, there is a brand new vw transporter van that has a Rat look vinyl wrap, it does actually look pretty damn good! Would love to be a fly on thewall whenit rolls in for first service! :-D

Worth bringing forward into the body of the thread Timmo. I am sure if I did a vinyl wrap you would be able to see all the joins :!:

That's wonderful :-D

I've often thought about having a yellow wrap on my Activa just to see what it would look like in my fav colour...

There's a person who does the deed just up the road from me. I just may ask one of these days...

it used to be a cheap option for changing the colour of the car, but from what i have seen about the net, for a good job on the van size your looking at £1500 ish now?? which was the cost of a half decent spray job, the difference being i suppose that in 5 years if your bored of it, peel it off and back to the standard colour,

i wonder if i could use my bx as Rat look via Nature!! 7 years of sitting on a driveway! :-D

Wasnt a lot wrong with it when I laid it up, just wasnt using it enough to warrant keeping it on the road, kept it mot'd for 2 years but stem seals went so no hope of a pass on smoke, for 3 years i've been meaning to bring it home and sort it out! ;-) rust has taken over a little now, usual places, but need it here so I can start to strip it down and see How bad it is!
i've owned it since 2002, 4th owner, local car too!

Tim, that car needs restoring :wink:

Shame a wrap is so expensive :(

Is there anyone here who can photoshop an Activa into a deep, rich yellow so I can see what it might look like?

Check this out Jim, it'll look great without the peeling and Yellow is the 3rd fastest colour.
