I wasnt gonna really modify my car but started off with just cd player and side repeaters and now looking at boot build and just got loads of ideas Laughing

Whenever i do a car i normally think of a theme, Saxo was black and white, 206's theme was Shit Wink


Had a little think and look about to see what there already is about, i came up with an idea of like a casino gambling poker sorta theme. Playing cards, dice, chips, money, you get the idea. Was thinking of getting the bonnet wrapped in either playing cards or maybe leaving it plain apart from a little thing just above the lights (will get pics up later of my ideas).

Just wondering on peoples thoughts of this? (and yes i know its my car so do what i like lol) cat

yeah i agree, keep it smart looking...
if you want a theme still, id just go for a colour theme again- just not black and yellow Wink

i dont think a gambling casino theme would look bad, its just you'd have to do it really well to pull it off...

I was just thinking of maybe the cards kinda the same but clean cards, white wheels with the centre caps different suits, heart on one, club on the other etc, maybe leathered seats eventually with Joker image on or something? And of course fluffy dice Wink

Love the idea. I say do it! I loved themed cars, as you probably know lol. Best way to customise and personalise your car in my opinion. The clean, bright playing card bonnet would look awsome, especially with a bonnet bra over the top... maybe a different coloured bra, like red or something Wink

Nah vinyl mate. You'll get a much nicer and cleaner finish like that. Could even have normal sized cards all over with a few larger cards on top. I deffo think if you do that you should get a bonnet bra though. Will just break it up a little, could even have a club, heart, diamond and spade stuck to one side of the bra, would look mint Smile

Petrol cap as one big poker chip, poker chip wheel centers, couple of dice towards the bottom car behind the front wheel arches... could be a winner Wink

I was thinking the cards on the bonnet, poker chip for petrol cap is good i like that, then white wheels with each centre cap being different suit and dust caps obviously. Boot build in green felt like this...



Sort the interior out with either the green or white leather to match wheels, then joker symbol in the middle of seats.

Right fudge it, im doing it lol, dan in need a price for bonnet!

Yeah interior sounds cool.

Bonnet will be £120 mate. Doesn't include design though but I may be able to find an image or design something on my lunch break/after work so you don't have to pay for it. If your happy with the price...
