Scally Rally Preparation

As I wrote about previously, JASONSLAPHEAD and I are taking part in the Scally Rally this year. Today, we completed phase 1 of work to our car.Our Theme is “New York Taxi”- I’m not sure why; it just is. We recently purchased a Skoda Felicia estate from eBay for £240.00 and it only had 171,000 miles on the clock. There’s a little bit of rust, but it rides nicely and we’re confident that it will manage the journey!
Today, JASONSLAPHEAD and I painted the car yellow, using stuff called “War Paint”, a brush and some rollers. I’ll admit that the car isn’t exactly in showroom condition, but considering we completed the job in around 3 hours (including the masking (badly, apparently)), I don’t think that’s too bad at all.
Here’s some before and after photos… just to clarify, the photos of the yellow car are the after photos…!
