    Thanks again Stephan for all you're help with the car, What a great picture! I feel it captures the essence of the late fifties. After looking at over a hundred of old pictures of customs and trying to find a cool paint sceme for Mark's car, Stephan sent me this picture and it burned a hole in my brain. I just could'ent stop thinking a bot that car, the colors and the custom trim were dead on. I sent the picture to Mark and it had the same effect on him. I shure wish somebody had more pictures of this car, if some body does, please post them.

    The candy blue is house of colors, the gold is actually the pearl base for the candy . We actually picked the gold first, it had to be the right tone and sort of paleness that was used in the late fifties. Though blue and gold are very diferent colors, by usesing the base coat, you avoid the colors clashing.

    Stock steering wheel was replaced with a 51, it has more of the mid century modern look.

    Thanks, I think once the stainless in on and the white and gold upholstery is in, the colors will work together.

    You guys work fast, when our Poncho was in base color, it was still 8 months from coming home. Plus, the guy did a shitty job. Shoulda brought it down there.

    The stainless on the door still needs work but we are waiting for Bob Lee to get back in town, so it will be finished at a later date, I would say the stainless was the hardest part of the build. You have to go back and file and polish every time you weld. After you cut down the pieces to the correct length , you have to make new caps , welding causes warpedge so you have file, straighten the piece and polish and then send the piece back to weld any spots you missed. If you are lucky , you will get it right the third time and every time you weld , you run the risk of ruining the piece. In the end , I feel the trim is important, shoe boxes have big flat sides and they need some trim to give the car more style .
