    Agree with your assessment of the window treatment. That really flows well. Are you using original gauges? It looks like in one picture that you are using the original instrument cluster panels.

    Hey xpletiv. I don't know what that means. Sorry!
    But it's going to be the shade of blue of the pic I posted of the dash. That's the final color. So a dark earth tone blue.

    Now that I'm broke I can watch my tears fall in all of that shinny metal.

    Looks good. I like the ridge where the old running lights were.

    Kyle spot primed the new mud spots. Time to block again and then final prime!!!! I can't wait. The next prime is going to get tinted blue. So I'm excited to see it in a new shade and closer to the final color.
