    Very nice shade of gold, it lays down nice on the shape of your car. Wheel/tire works too!

    I wouldn't touch a thing! Looks absolutely awesome. I like the skinny whites with astros also, but the www look fantastic!

    Thanx for the comps. I did fully intend to go shiny, but once I saw the base it just was it. Plus the reality of the situation is didn't have the money to take it down to metal and do the proper bodywork, and the gold shows everything so the gloss would just highlight it. The body is in great shape, it's just been painted 3 times...

    Still got a lot of work to do on it. I need to finish the interior, trunk, detail engine comp, etc etc, but it's fun to drive in the meantime.

    "nailed" it. bright idea: we can trade (my) gold riv for (your) gold riv. great ride.

    like the dash a lot, and the color rocks.
    I would go w/ 1" or 1" 3/4 medium, not the real pinner ones, butr your car your decision.
