  • Just a quick Hello.... and a bit of advice please.

    Hi all,

    First Post!

    Took delivery of my new arden on Tuesday and already looking to make some adjustments. So far had the windows lightly tinted.

    First job needs to be an SMD conversion, cant decide on blue or not, has anyone had it done in white? would love to see what it looks like.

    May aswell get a new stereo at the same time if its coming out anyway was thinking about the VXMMI? any recomendations or possible alternatives?

    And want the alloys powder coating black or white???? not sure which tho

    would love some feedback on what you guys think.

    Cheers all

    Russ.

            I would go for gloss black wheels, vxmmi are meant to be good and look oe. As for the smd i would go blue mate it would look mint.

                      Thanks for the welcome all.

                      Those smd's in white do look good, especially with the odd bit of red aswell. I quite like the standard colour of the clocks its just that nasty orangy in the centre dash that annoys me. Does anyone know what the smd colours in the VXMMI are? that may help final decision.

                      I see so many of the Arden's with the black and they do look, just want to be a bit different thats all. Maybe a dark gloss anthracite. any one got any pics of an arden with white snowflakes on?

                      Does anyone know a good powder coaters in Nottingham, also anyone know a good chrome platers that could plate a roll cage.

                      Cheers all

                        Welcome, I'd go for the black alloys
                        Would look mint on the Arden blue

                            Wlecome to the online forum hope you enjoy.
                            If you want to be different then the only way to go with the wheels is white,
                            but it's your choice
