Given that Winning Blue is absolutely the fastest colour, I was lucky to grab these two whilst she was briefly stationary :)

Love the look of this car it's so different from the rest it really does stand out. I like the assembled in 24hours aswell :D .
Is the numberplate full size? I've been toying with the idea of relocating it's been almost everywhere on the front apart from there.

Glad you like the look but the roof and lettering is about to go. It was all put on for our trip to Le Mans last year. We are just about to head off for Le Mans classic, so am removing it now it is no longer the anniversary of the 787 victory. Not letting the bonnet design go just yet tho ;)

As for the number plate, yes it is full size. I had thought about going the show plate route, until Speedy36 got to chat about his in detail to lady police officer who was very partial to his car as he was on the way back from our monthly meet. #-o It is dead easy to fit there using the existing screws so you might as well give it a go and then you can say it has been everywhere :)
