Got under the car late yesterday and was able to get some photos of some things that have final paint on them, like the inside of the fenders. This gives you an idea of the final color of the car. Reds, especially this type and shade of red are very difficult to get a camera to reproduce them correctly. They are meant to be viewed in person! This pics show the car to be a bit more orange than is true, but this is the best I can do laying on my back with an on-camera flash. Daylight does it much better justice, especially with this much Pearl in the paint itself..

I will be doing a major site update as this goes to final paint later this week.

Winter is when you drive these things in the good 'ole South. Save your paint and rust repair for August when the thought of driving during the day in a car with out air conditioning will make think twice.

White is the representation of all colors reflected evenly. For example

a white light is passed through a spectrum and on the other side a

rainbow is present showing us every color. Black however absorbs all

color and reflects, in principle, nothing.

When we see a red object the light reflected off of it is, of course, red.

The other colors from the light that hits it don't magicall disapear.

They ar absorbed into to the object. This also explains why black

surfaces are more easily heated by the sun than others.

This is a common arguement. Usually utilized by the ignorant. The

flaw in the arguement is the fact that all paint mixed reflect a very dark

representation of all colors. the contrast of the colors prove this. If

you were to mix a selection of all colors in a high tint, pink baby blue

and light yellow, (the primary colors hous the ability to make every

color)it would not look black.

And in the printing business, white is the absence of colours while black is the smudge that results from too much of all inks. He, he...

two yrs. ago when my son had his ' 74 painted he chose 2000 M3 Estoril Bluemetalic and the artist (He's too good to be called a car-painter; mainly does show cars, like pickups w/ the running boards 4 ft. in the air, garage queens, etc.) added a little pearl, and the result was stunning. Along side an Estoril Bluemetalic M3, it really looks nice in comparison.
