...what do people think of my attempts to fix the TR7/8? I've been wanting to get one and try grafting on flying buttresses, and I've been crudely using photoshop to try and mock up what one would look like.

The latest idea is to black out the lower part of the rear bumper, and then paint the controversial scallop down each side in a darker version of the main colour (or perhaps dark blue/black if it's a white car). Visually, it helps disguise the expanse of metal towards the rear of the car, which is exacerbated by the flying buttresses.

A similar thing featured on the various rally versions of the car, which seemed to help a lot (pics below). I think it looks better than my previous idea, which was for a piece of black trim to run along the sill.

What do you reckon?
