    Wow. That's a beauty!!
     
  12. Nice car. The bare metal look has been done to death. Still, it does give you a buzz, and id run it like that untill you can afford paint. Either clear coat it, or wash with WD40 once in a while.

    I think it's cool! Who cares what has been "done to death" as long as you dig it? ;)
     
  15. Cool car and my opinion.
    I like the look of headlight centerline being equal to the top of the front tires.
    Carry on as you like.

    Paint is overrated. Bare steel looks good.

    I like the bare metal look that shows a perfect body, with photos taken fron every angle. Those photos prove how nice it was after you paint it. Bob

    I like it, leave it bare for awhile, who the hell cares. You said you may not have the dough for a car show, I think we can understand you not having the dough for the paint job.

    Gibbs brand oil spray is the best for keeping it protected.
