After removing the tampo`s from my #74 GT2 I decided to make a white street version of the GTR Coupe . I have the Black roadcar but wanted to have a go to see how it turned out.
Im still a custom rookie so this is my first major job but I think its coming along ok.
As of today it has been De-tampoed and the BBS rims repainted gold which I prefer over the standard grey colour (ugh).
Soon to be fitted with a full interior from another 3 series and some more paintwork details . Mirrors will be colour matched too and window surrounds painted to get rid of the race car rivet effects .

By the way it started out as the Red Bull GTR Coupe . :happy

It sounds as if its going to be good Gary.

What interior are you going to fit? Is it going to be from a UT M3 or 328i coupe, or from something else?

:cheers

Good work Gary.
I am planning to get that technicolor Daloon BMW GTR. Its the only gtr available. Lets see what i can do with it. I have plans to strip the paint and rattle can spray it in red.

Thanks Jim.
I think its gonna be from a 328 Coupe as I couldnt justify pulling an M3 to bits .
The standard yellow UT coupes can be picked up for less than £10 so for that sacrifice I can get 2 GTR`s sorted out as my Black roadcar has a small crack in the screen .
I was thinking about adding some Recaro`s from a 993 RS (the ones with body coloured back panels) but as Im busy with a UT GT2 , I thik I will keep those for that.

:cheers

Thanks Jeff
It was those great looking CLK`s you did that gave me the idea to strip the tampo`s off . The decals were easy , they came off just by rubbing them with my thumbnail , but the tampo`s took a bit more work with the old NPR(non acetone of course) .
A couple of hours careful rubbing and it was back to virgin white paintwork , and the shine on it is really good. I even got the tampo`s off the plastic rear spoiler using NPR . It did remove the paint , but the spoiler was moulded in white plastic anyway and you cant tell the difference .
Once the trim is sorted and it gets a few minor paint details it should look pretty good alongside my genuine GTR.

:cheers
