Bravado Gauntlet Classic Appreciation Thread

Recommended Posts

IceDree

Previously in Driv3rIceDree's Gauntlet project.

 

____________________

 

I wanted my friends at Grotti to do the Interior, but their Classiche division was swamped with orders. So they put in the good word to their colleagues at Lampadati for me. Of course I ordered a Lampadati Novak Trofeo to sweet the deal, The Novak should be ready in 11-12 weeks (God damn dripfeed 🤦‍♂️).

 

Anyway, I sent them a reproduction 70 Gauntlet dashboard, doorcards, roof panel & rear seats, contour front seats from a 90s vintage Übermacht Oracle & a custom center console we built in the shop for reupholstering. My friends at Crowex did an impeccable job building a Rallye style instrument cluster.

 

While the folks at Lampadati were doing the upholstery, Otto and I were arguing about the trim.

 

6k0hXcZ.jpg

 

Boss says jump, employees say how high. 🤣

 

We put everything together once the interior parts arrived from Italy and check for final adjustments before stripping the Gauntlet again for the paint process.

Everything was in perfect order, the vintage style Cuoio hide smelled just like the Mediterranean, the Crowex dials were in a league of their own, worth every penny (a small fortune!), the polished brightwork screamed quality and the Alcantara headliner was ... There's no words for that. The folks at Lampadati blew my mind! Perfection.

 

Anyway, we stripped the Gauntlet again and left nothing but the body parts to prepare it for a concours-grade job worthy of that interior.

I only have room for 3 GCs. PCP 70 (🤣) one, a blue 71 one & I was debating the third one between a Hemi Orange and the Driver cars ... Now that Cuda is competing against the HO & Driver cars for the slot lol.

 



The 71 is inspired by this, but with muscle freaks instead of el hefes.

The Hemi one.

I'm not 100% sure what you mean.. but the Sabre seems a good enough pick for that Miami car (except for the rear bumper).
Plus, the Vamos didn't even exist back then when I made these videos and had to choose the car :D

The Vamos would probably be a better pick for that San Francisco car. 
Is that what you meant ? ^^

Oh, I forgot the Malibu look-alike was that different on the PSX version, on PC the car had taillights identical to the Vamos.

 

By all means, use the Sabre since that one does look a lot like the PS1 version, just lose the front splitter and tone down on the black a little(though I have no idea how that color can be achieved though..Is it purple?)

Man, the Motorstorm series is so underrated! I don't know how that never crossed my mind, I'm a huge Motorstorm fan and the Surger is one of my favourite cars from it.

Look dude, some cars are meant to be stanced, some aren't.

 

Y'all stance folks take group pics of your cars online in pastel colors all lowered to hell. Some cars look good that way. I know of Bosozoku, I know of Zokusha, Bippu and VIP. The fact of the matter remains that you have to respect a car.

 

Ever heard of Mooneyes Japanese Hot Rodder's bought them out. Google the "God Runner" that's one Japanese 70's style American hot rod. Even the Japanese do not turn old muscle cars into slammers. They respect the culture and mod them up in their own way that follows suit. 

 

Google the "Magic Powder" Challenger. Dude has the Smokey and The Bandit, Snowman's truck mural painted in ONE STRIPE of his car. They know their stuff.

 

Respect the era, respect the culture, know your sh*t.

 

You act like because I love Mopar I don't know Pluspy...You stance hipsters think your so smart but really you ain't. The smart guys stay shut until someone like you needs to get an education

lmao i just hate wheels clipping trough fenders, try not to start a holy war over it

 

hardly my fault that rockstar sucks at making cars

 

i'm not the type of guy to stance everything but if it's the only way to get rid of the clipping then by all means

 

besides, we have no ridiculous camber options in this game so far so there is no risk of ricers destroying it

 

oh wait, they already do with chrome paint and dollar rims

 Cheap? They're cheaper than most of the casino cars but this isn't that cheap, especially when multiple add up with customization well into the millions

It changes with the grille.

 

The stock grille makes it black, everything else is primary/secondary paint.

I changed my plum crazy T/A to Go Mango and my black Cuda to Plum Crazy/In-Violet because you could barely see the stripes on the T/A with it in Plum Crazy with them both being fairly dark colours. Go Mango also gives an excuse to use a Burnt Orange interior(using Sienna Brown, since it seemed closest to the real interior colour) rather than boring black. I'll get pictures of my switched up Gauntlets soon, but this is the T/A I based mine on, with the only difference being added louvres on mine.

I still very much want a Vanishing Point replica, and a regular Challenger R/T with Magnum 500s(unsure of what colour to make that one), but at least one of those will wait until the GC is the podium car at the casino to see if I can win one instead of spending the money.

Well, I bought a second one. Figured the Panther Pink T/A was more than vibrant enough for two, so I wanted something more subdued.

A promised, here are pictures of my updated Gauntlets, I also swapped the wheels on my dragster back to stock, as they're nice wheels and I won't be using them on my other builds because they don't replicate any real Challenger wheels well, so why not use them on my custom build instead? They're also slightly wider than aftermarket wheels, so they look a bit better for the drag build.

I have quite a few pictures of all three, so I'll do it a bit differently this time and put at least one picture of each outside of spoilers as previews, then the rest inside spoilers sorted by car(in the same order as the previews).

 

Oh, and if you don't mind, would you tell me which is your favourite picture of each car? It's really hard for me to decide which is the best photo of the shoot sometimes and I'd appreciate some feedback.

These two pictures are just too cool to bury within spoilers

First is the Challenger T/A in Go Mango.

I love how closely the air filter resembles the real six pack one, if only it was orange too.

t5ZmCRb.jpg

Sienna Brown to replicate Burnt Orange for the interior, it looks very brown in the dark or shaded areas, but in direct sunlight it looks almost perfect imo. The only other option was Sunrise Orange, which was far too bright, almost the same colour as the car itself, whereas the Burnt Orange interior on the real thing is quite a bit darker than the Go Mango body colour.

And last, but not least, the drag Cuda. Unfortunately I only ended up with night pictures of this, as I spent the whole day taking pictures of the other two, but I still got some pretty cool shots I think, and the colour isn't quite as important on this car, so I think it's fine.

 

I had to put on my flyboy outfit for the pics of this car, it only seemed fitting.
