I went with Martini Black Widow style trim on my 959 Speedster. I did it myself in my garage and it turned out okay luckily lol!

I'm not generally a 956 fan, but that looks very cool, Clark!
I'm with Stan. Normally I'm not a big fan of these, but doing it up like a race car works well. Nice job!
I like the Martini Racing Livery. But I think the rear stance is too tall and the tires seem proportionally too big for the car. You did a great job with the rest of her though.
Thanks, your right but I live in Thunder Bay, pot hole city of Northwestern Ontario and she is a driver so I'll sacrifice looks for a softer ride! Always seems to draw a crowd and people love the car at cruise nights and car shows. I recently built and owned a yellow 73 RS clone, a red 911 Slantnose and a red 356 Speedster replica and none got the attention this gets. People want to sit in it and get their picture taken! It's crazy even I had a 73 Ferrari Dino replica with a 455 big block and the crowd favours this one. It's not what I expected either... This one took me three years to build.

There's something about the shape of a Speedster that attracts folks, particularly children (like most of us). It took me a while to get used to it.
Clark - Do you have the build manual? If you could scan it, Theron (SOC site admin) could add it to the resources library along with the CMC and FF build manuals that are currently there.
I'm curious if the build requires shortening the VW chassis any. For the CMC Speedster it gets cut 10.5-11". The 359 seems to have a much larger engine compartment and what appears to be a longer wheel base.
