    The side shots really show the pancake effect of the hood graft. I'm really glad that you pointed this out, or I would never have noticed, being just the opposite of what one might expect. Very subtle, but very much a defining element of the car!

    Update: block sand, block sand, block sand.

    The car will need a new name because it will no longer be black. Any suggestions would be appreciated
     
  9. I just read on another shoebox thread that cream is the new black. :)

    Cream Cavendish? Cavendish and Cream? Peaches and Cream? Bailey's Irish Cream? :rolleyes:
