    I think you should leave it black and pearl white, and put a BIG STAR on the doors! :D

    ...and then he paints it the same color as mine was...dammit...!

    Mark my words, I will own another one someday! You had better be proud of the work you guys did! That car keeps looking more and more amazing everytime I see it here. My two cents? I'd do the original gold color on the bottom, and throw the hub caps back on it. It looks like a car from the 'little pages' days!

    Thanks man I dig it n I am putting the old caddy caps back on it just gotta get them from my shop. As far as color I'm gonna hand pix up some candy but it should be pretty close. I'm thinking maybe some white flake on the white

    Verrry Nice, likin' it more'n'more as you go along! Diggin' the two-tone! You may already have considered it & decided against it, but I was thinkin' rounded corners [~4" radius maybe] would look good on the hood, to compliment the grille cavity & headlights? Just thinkin' out loud, that's all...
