It's not going to stay purple. We've got a few colours but haven't decided for sure.

Put the steeringkolom and the wipermotor in base too so they an be sprayed in colour soon and finished the second box at the banana. Has to be grinded and sprayed with zink before welding. After that it will be sprayed in black (whole inner car will be in black)
Hope ya like!
