coleman porsche

Post  bmd on Thu Feb 23, 2017 9:28 pm

guys, anyone on here completed a colemans porsche using arena decal? questions please...

1. what is the small white decal just behind the front wheels, between wheelarch and leading edge of front door? (my eyes aint what they used to be...)
2. i only see one name plate decal on the sheet, ie one decal with driver/codriver...surely there should be two....one for each door? or did they do something rare like put the driver on his door and codriver on his? the instruction pic has two names on drivers doortop...

any help appreciated lads...cheers

Cant remember the exact decals as im not on my pc but from memory they are the same as the otto model so you may not have to replicate them.

Cant remember for sure, and it may have changed on different events but it was 2 decals with champion on top and bilstien underneath that matched up with the otto model

From Arena Modelli:

"sorry for the delay but in this time we are very busy.
Here my answers:

1 - the White scrpt is MATTER
2 - on the codriver side the name is Randy Morgan.
From my documentation the names are only one on each side."

So they say but...... ive just taking a quick gander on the web and im really not convinced. I think its BILSTEIN and then underneath BILSTEIN it will probably be shock absorbers (but the latter is guesswork)

Is this Billy's car? (4th picture, number 2 car COI or is it Toivonens?

https://www.google.co.uk/search?q=billy+coleman+porsche&espv=2&biw=1366&bih=662&source=lnms&tbm=isch&sa=X&ved=0ahUKEwi4g6nntMDSAhUDJ8AKHS4CAF4Q_AUIBigB#imgrc=6OF9UtARkrzWHM:

If you zoom in i think you can just make out the start of the word BIlSTEIN

This picture of a restored car may also be useful - there are a few Coughmans 911s on the web with the white BILSTEIN logo.

http://forums.pelicanparts.com/porsche-marketplace-discussion/599338-high-mileage-911scs.html

There are a few of Billy's car on here as well - looks like a Champion logo in White/blue was also present above the BILSTEIN logo on some events.

paul, ted, many thanks guys for that...
the decals are for his no3 1985 circuit of Ireland car, I see many variations of the car, some with the decal, some without, some with sunstrip, some without, between 1984 and 1986....still not 100% sure lol

ok ive rewatched the vid on youtube and I'm now convinced that billys car neither had the decal in front of the rear wheel, nor did it have the sunstrip, unlike his team mate beguin....of course I stand to be corrected if someone knows better lol.... Smile

Billy Coleman1985 Circuit: No sunviser - was carrying in-car camera for RTE (in a similar way to Ari Vatanen not carrying a sunviser on the 'Oh my God' Manx Rally). Rothmans Rally sunvisor on rear window though. Both names on either doors. Colour Champion sticker half way down front wings behind front wheels. Check out rallyretro.com
