***UPDATE***

After some fettling of the rear flares they're ready. This is the prototype car - mine is still in paint.

Are you going t bring the wheels out any more and if so how?
Also, how are you finding the steering weight and turn in with the current off-set.

Wheels will probably need spacers. Would like to lower it more but the spoiler is quite deep, so may be an issue. This is the prototype built by @ozibimmer. I haven't driven it yet but expect the steering weight to be horrendous! In the long run I will probably get custom wheels made.

Hello, I would like to publicly thank Adaam of [email protected] for his Patience and delivery of my John Player Special body kit for my Euro 6!

The fit I am sure will follow suit! Please help Adaam out and be sure to give [email protected] a look for your next build! You won't be disappointed! Thank you Adaam!

Greetings, all:

We run a 633CSi in 24 Hours of Lemons and are prepping a car for a race at Buttonwillow this month. We are thinking of doing the JPS livery. Does anybody have a vector file of the logo they would be willing to share? Hell, I'd even pay a few bucks for it. We have a plotter and a dxf file will be easy to cut. If you send us the file, we can cut some logos for you!!!

Our car is Kashmierbeige (or something like that). Let's call it gold. We can easily mask off the JSP stripes to let the kashmir beige show through, rattle can the entire car, and place the logos in a few hours. (I know 6-Series purists may be cringing right now, but it was a $500 car, and a less desirable model. Completely Lemons worthy.)

Meanwhile, here's the car at the last race we ran. Lucky Dog at Buttonwillow in February. Next time I hope it looks like the JSP tribute cars you guys have built!

And at the Lemons race at Sonoma last December:

Thanks,
Bill
