Those of you following are probably surprised to this fairly dramatic change of direction. After much deliberation, it felt wrong to push this car into the popular colour of white. I felt obligated to make this car something that it is, a 1975. '75, was a time of bell bottoms, leisure suits, tee's and fun colours.
So, an icon needs to be an icon...
What at a pig of a colour to paint with. The pictures below are after 5 coats of this super transparent paint and 5 coats of clear. The clear is a highly flexible Sherwin Williams product that is wonderfully transparent and durable.
I have a 360 degree video which is also outside in the sun
i am am putting the turbo flares on this car. I was really mixed on that but ultimately, I want to keep the wider wheels and the wheels sticking out is trouble for the paint and the cops. I will put them back on once the brakes and engine are back in.
Now the assembly fun begins!
