    here's a couple of pics out in the sun yesterday. the color is a little darker than originally planned, only because I had a problem with the new paint system I'm using. when I started the car I was using sikkens, and since then I switched to matrix. (great paint system, half the cost) I wanted to use the matrix so if I had any issues down the road, I have it in house. anyway, they have a basecoat clear for 3 stage, and I figured I'd try it, instead of putting the blue toner in the clear coat. WRONG!! couldn't get it to cover, and after 4 coats, I went back and put 3 coats of true candy over the top of that. so I ended up with 7 coats of candy instead of 3 like originally planned. I then put 4 coats of clear over that. took me 6hrs. to paint that friggin car! I must have walked a mile in that spray booth going around that car. anywho, looks killer in the sun, going to wait a week and then sand and buff, then the fun part of reassembly begins! will post more pics as we go along. enjoy. eddie.

    That paint looks great, even after the hassles and the mile walk.

    I'd walk a mile for a paint job like that.
    Glad to see this one brought back to the top.

    The paint looks great, the stance is awesome and that interior is killer!
    And the blue lights up front are a nice touch - where did you get those?
    Hope the engine compartment looks equally as cool - please post some pictures.
