My CS is now being painted Turkis. The pics on my desktop monitor look like the color is correct. What color was the car before painting? Doing a color change is a major project. Your car has turned out very nice. What's it like driving a LHD car on the opposite side of the road in Australia?
Drew ...the car left Germany as a "Polaris Silver" then when it went to California one of the owners changed it to "Fjord Blue"........so with non matching Nos engine or colour I decided on Turkis 065.......have to say was a little apprehensive at first.

Oh...ok....no I had it chromed........there is a mob here in South Australia that does plastic chroming....they are very good and do jobs all around the world I believe. (its not cheap but excellent work) BTW the vertical body part between the kidney and the outer grille with the headlights I had reinforced with steel rod as its seemed a bit flimsy when we were doing the body fab work.

Ooh la la! Magnifíque!
A Turkis Buddy on the loose. Absolutely stunning!
Side pipes and the coolest, most subtle air dam I have seen. I could go for that!

Excellent execution! Only Turkis e9 I've ever seen in person was at the Mothership Museum.
I've seen both the Munich car and Paul's. Paul's is the boss. . It looks quite blueish in the pics in this thread. I think the shot of the hinge end of the inside of the bonnet in the tenth picture down is the closest to the in person colour. When you see the car the colour fills your eye sockets.

It's a funny thing... digital cameras don't seen to know how to interpret Turkis. Depending on light to an extent, and I think camera sensor to a large extent, it can look very different under different conditions. Paul's camera is doing a pretty good job, but in-person, it's something special!
