    A little update got the firewall sprayed with a bright white single stage with a little blue pearl added.

    Looks good, like the blue.
     
  12. Love the color, even more love the fact it wasnt done in a high end booth.
     
  13. What brand is it? Looks really good. Single stage metallics are hard to make look right.

    Cool car...

    I sweep really well, wet the floor down and put a fan at the front and one at the back.

    Wow, that really did turn out sweet. I think the white firewall makes it look just right too and I was a bit worried that wasn't going to work at all. Find the right background and you could do a rotogravure page that looked straight out of a 1956 Hotrod issue.

    That's the plan. I want to drive down to the old Firestone plant here but it's on a really busy road
