I really like the artistic top shot, second from last.

maybe I am old fashioned, but I like the 4 color lithograph look

Love the style.....

Ditto on the top shot...a similar view from the rear would be good. :bouncyyellow:


The low down views numbers 1 and 4 are good...but I find the rear one just too low and focus too much on the underside of the floor... raising it so the bumpers are at eye level to me would be better....but hey...they are your work so your final say..!

All the best

Lovely pictures......does make one realize just what a gorgeous car an e type is...mine is green (not an e type green) but almost any colour is great although for me dark blue or gun metal grey maybe ....

Am I going to have to wait for the S2 version in Light Blue? :wink:

Though I must admit to liking one in ODB

The pictures appear to have S2 hubs already, if that helps.
Did FHCs ever have those OTS mirror rod thingies?

The piccies look good though,

Opalescent dark blue Series1 FHC with flat hub wires describes my car perfectly. Definitely no mirror rod though.

Nice work Trev.
