JPS conversion

JPS conversion

Postby Mikee » Tue 10.01.2012, 23:42

I am not sure if this is a MAJOR project or not....But I am treating it as such...

I've recently decided I am going to keep the car (forever).

137K on the clock and after 5 relatively minor pain driving years, I thought I'd convert it to a JPS model.

I read with great interest Paul's project and have seen the original JPS in the flesh and loved it to bits.

So I thought it was time to create my own.
I think i'll probably go a little further in terms of graphics (perhaps not like the Esprit's, but more in the old Europa style), but a little less in terms of interior.

Does anyone have any thoughts/learnings/dislike for the idea/recommendations for vinyls/suppliers/seating/locations for specific items (e.g gold badge) etc.....?
all ideas welcome and taken on board.

This is just the beginning.

I think Paul Parsons did a very good job on his blackie - if that's your thing. I'd suggest if you're going down that route that you contact Paul Parsons by PM (maybe someone on LEC has his e-mail address ? GUK, Dico, dave Ed's ??) Paul will be able to point you in the direction of where he got his graphics, leather seats etc.. done.

How about a version of this (maybe without the "Renault" (unless you want that for the rear lights) and "GP" bits :lol: )

Mike, although i rarely post on here nowadays, i do look in most wks, as i still have an interest. This is something i've contemplated doing again myself if funds ever allow, so 002 is a possibility, however, if i can help in anyway in the meantime, please don't hesitate in asking. I'll pm you my contact details.

Paul I get to see 001 quite regularly and must say you did a fantastic job. I spend lots of time staring in envy every time I see it.

That'd work, especially as Renault donated some parts for the car.
