    Finally things starting to come together the body is not all the way down on the chassis in the back, I miscalculated my sub rail notch as per Bishop/Tardell book so I have to redo a small piece of the subrail for it to fit down over the frame step but every thing else seems to be good. I'm hoping when everything is installed the rear will drop a tad bit more and dont mind the wheels/tires they are just on there to move it around it will have 16's and 7.50/5.50's stones and 42 caps on it soon.

    Thanks Fellas, the color is my interpatation of Washington Blue after several mixes on different old Washington Blue codes and recipies they were all different I picked the 2 I liked best and then went to a color chip book and found the closest in modern BC/CC code to it. Its an Older Porsche color called "Dark Blue" LOL . Quickie is from Dick Spadaro/Winters
