Just spent a couple hours looking on the tinternet for a suitable door that I can put in the shop diorama.
I found one then set about printing on normal paper different sizes till I was happy and stuck a "STAFF ONLY" sign on that then printed off in glossy photograph paper.
Just took a pic, but will put it on later today.


More parts found and i write a list what I want in it as i go along then ad more.
I need to design the counter and shelving too as I want parts to stand out right so they can be seen.
Bits like the pigs ears and the front spoiler and headlamps and stuff.
With the Escort notices i wrote them on flourescent cars, but i want this to be different so if I can print them I will.

I need to try and research again Motorsport shops so that i can see layouts for parts stands and racks etc and I would like a tyre stand with different types of treaded tyres and tyre makes.
a stand for bucket seats.

I am toying with the idea of making a frame up then make another wall so I can ad enough parts but not go overboard so it looks like a cramped shop as I have the customers to place about the shop.

Decided to do the floor in black and white type tiles checks so it makes it stand out more

Yes Paul, still the 6R4 shop, hence Mark's comments about 'pigs ears', also known as 'donkey d0ngs', I believe!?

We 6R4 fanatics have a language all our own! Wink

Good ideas there, Mark. Will be pleased to see how you're progressing in the coming days/ nights! You were up late last night/ this morning!!

Cheers, Steve

Can't decide whether to make a shop front or leave it open so you can see better into it

I'm aware of where you got the '6r4' wall graphic from Mark - clever thinking! - but a lowercase 'r'! affraid

That is 6R4 treason and you should be hung, drawn & quartered for that! Evil or Very Mad
