Orange (918 red) is such a great colour but I'm yet to see 2 zeds in this colour that look the same. My 260 is 918 red and looks nothing like all the others I've seen that have been repainted. I know my 260 has been painted but the door shuts and engine bay haven't and they match the outside perfectly.

Anyway, great looking car.

Were there two '918' codes John? A USA Orange and Other Market Red? When I was getting mine I told a friend it was 918 Orange and he asked if I was sure? My engine bay is the original colour and is a slightly different colour to the topcoat as its had a repaint a few years ago

I thought your 260 was 110 red John? It's a very orange red:

I think there is only one 918. Yours does look more like that swatch than mine though. The 260 has the original sticker on the rad panel.

Loving this, you're 45 mins from me Mr T, I fancy an hour at yours for a look one weekend, if you're free?!

How are the floors looking?

Floors are reasonable, looks like some water got trapped under the soundproofing so there'll be at least one patch. If there's a dry weekend and you want to come down just give me a shout

have you cleaned the underside also? I wouldn't worry about a patch or two, I had the same.

Having a 1971 Orange Z myself, I am very partial to this color Z. Your looks like a great start for sure and nice battery tray to boot.
