    [​IMG]This is a car I saw on here. I had rust issues.I fixed it all. Just not crazy about the original Seafoam Green. We all like Prowler Orange. Any suggestions? I am getting some Supremes. I'm not going to bag it. 2" drop with Jamco srings.

    Will the interior be modernized? Or a White tuck and roll? The new color isn't bad. A Silver base would light it up.
     

  5. Beautiful car....If you're asking for a color suggestion I suggest something dark, very dark...maybe a Cadzilla Purple?

    I like what you got there. I know some times pictures can hide things though. I went with a gold on my 63 from a scion XB, looks good and if i have a fender bender i can fix it easy because its a standard color, no candy or extras. great feature for a daily drivers that sees its fare share of parking lots. I like gold on cars in this era specially if your going for a custom look.

    Too bad you don't like the current color because my first inclination when I saw your pic was "why do you want to paint it another color". That being stated, I think those Rivs look amazing in black. Also, didn't Cadillac have a color called Firemist in the fifties or early sixties. I remember that being a nice color. BTW, it is not a red or orange.
