Colin sells his fasty

30 Aug

It was a sad day at RSVP when Colin finally decided to let the fasty go. The new owner had requested it to be raised slightly and to be put back onto 17″ fuch. He shipped a set to colin for him to fit. It’s a shame that such a cool car has had to leave the RSVP line up but it is all for a good cause. Colin is now on the look out for something very early, right hand drive and of the split bus variety. We’ll let you know what he finds. (Photos copyright Paul Pace)

Colin’s fasty gets new wheels

28 Aug

Colin had been struggling to find a set of wheels he loved on his fasty since he had owned it. He had been through several sets of wheels from ercos to fuch even going for 17″ fuch for quite some time. Just before the Volks World show in March he had decided to go back to 15″ and with the help of Brett and Paul detailed a set of chrome fuch. The fasty looked great but Colin still wasn’t happy with the look. In early July he made a decision to go back to 4 stud instead of porsche pattern when he held up one of Paul’s 2 litres next to his wheel arch. 2 litres were the wheel of choice but he wanted to do something different. He didn’t want the usual detailed or fully polished look, he wanted to do something different that no one had done before. After an evening of chatting whilst working on Paul’s beetle with the other RSVP boys Colin came up with the idea of having a polished rim and a cast sort of finish centre. A plan of action was then put into place and Colin started on his quest to source a set of good quality 2 litres. A set of fairly new american eagle 2 litres came up for sale and he struck the deal and went to collect them. The already polished rims were then heavily masked up and Colin and Brett took them over to Brett’s dad’s yard. There they set up a make shift booth and Brett sand blasted the centres to achieve the cast like finish. Colin was stoked with the result and quickly swapped the brakes over to 4 stud and got the wheels fitted ready to roll to Bug Jam 26. The fasty had never looked better. (Photos copyright RSVP)
