Just waiting for a quote to get my Ceffy's paint touched up, changing the bonnet to white and fixing up a few little dings and scratches in the front quarter panels and bumpers. The rest of the body is very straight, clean and completely rust free, so tidying up a few little bits and pieces will make it look pretty good for an older car. Not many around that aren't hammered-to-death drift pigs. Once that gets done and I get the front mount installed, I'll be pretty happy with the car for now.
After having it sit in the garage for nearly a year, just being able to take it out for a few minutes' exercise every couple of days has been really good. The clutch is a bit heavy for my weak left leg sometimes, after jumping in it a few days ago to take it around the block, my leg started shaking a lot almost straight away from the effort of pushing the clutch in. It hasn't happened that badly before, must have been extra tired that day or something.
After looking at it some more, I'm thinking that those black strips on the front and rear bumpers will clash with the rest of the clean white look. I initially thought they were rubber, but after tapping on them they feel sort of similar to the bumpers. Does anyone know what they're made of? Was wondering whether they could be removed when the bumpers are resprayed, or if just painting over them would be ok?
And regarding the thread title- I've also had a bit of a look around at other Ceffies, and there's a couple of a white one similar to mine with dished white rims which I quite like the look of, offset is a bit much though.
That said, they do look kinda expensive and I don't exactly have lots of money to burn on a set of wheels. I was pondering whether getting the current Buddy Club P1s powder-coated or painted might be a good look to continue the white theme.
Thoughts? And any more pics of cars with the white & white look?
Here are a couple more of Cefiros with white rims...
..and some random other examples of white rims on white cars.
